Tea Helpers

We all enjoy a cup of tea after our Sunday services but without helpers this ministry wouldn’t be possible. We are appealing for helpers to serve tea after our 9:30am service. You would only be required to be on the roster once a month. If you can assist with this special ministry in our church, please contact the office 031 765 49 08

Covenant Prayer

Yesterday at our Covenant Services we celebrated all that God has done for us, and affirm that we give our lives and choices to God with this prayer:

God of the Covenant,
I place my life in your hands – for it to be yours to direct and not mine
May you decide what I should do and with whom I should do it;
May you guide when I should be active and when I should rest;
May you sustain me when I am well and when I suffer;
May you be reflected in me when I am praised and when I am challenged;
May I give thanks to you when I enjoy abundance,
and when I know what it is to go without;
May my whole life be given in service of your love and salvation,
use all that I have and all that I am for your purposes;
And may I always remember that you, O God, and I belong to each other.
This is my commitment – I stand by it.
And I ask that you, Jesus, bear witness to it.
Amen

Creed

The Creed that Rev. Peter Butterworth shared with the congregation on Sunday:
 
We believe in God, the Creator!
Maker of everything,
Author of the Universe,
And Mystery behind every matter.
We believe in Jesus Christ!
God from God, Light from Light, true God and true human,
One with the Creator.
He is the Word made flesh and the Savior of all creation!
We believe in the Holy Spirit!
Breath of God moving among us,
One with the Creator and one with Christ,
He is our Guide and the Mentor of all creation!
 
Amen.
