This Committee oversees the ministry areas and social groups within the church. They meet once a month and support the groups in getting tasks done and advertising events to the congregation and the community. The committee also ensures families and members receive pastoral care in times of need.
During the year small groups gather to study a chosen book, a section of the Bible or a particular topic led by the minister. This is done in manageable weekly sessions and usually run four weeks.

The Role of Mary in the Church
A small group of people trained specifically in hospital visitation. This group assists the minister in making pastoral care visits when people are in hospital.
At times, members of the congregation are unable to attend church and wish to celebrate communion. This small group is trained in the liturgy and are able to serve people communion in their homes.
Each Sunday during the coffee time following the service, a ‘Welcome person’ is available to greet and speak with visitors and new attendees. They are very knowledgeable about the church and can answer questions, offer information and provide a tour of the church.
Our drivers are congregants who have completed an official police screening and provide transportation to appointments, church services or events to those who are ill or in need of help.
