Time and Talents 2018

“Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.”
Romans 12: 4 - 5
 
Our Vision and Purpose as a church is summed up in our St Stephen’s purpose statement:
“Honouring God, following the example of Jesus and sharing his love in our community.”

We ALL have a vital part to play in achieving this purpose and building for growth. To this end, ‘Encouraging Everyone to be included and involved’ is one of our core values. That is, every person counts (from the youngest to the oldest) and shares in the work of the local church and in Christ's ministry and mission in the world. 

So, the purpose of this questionnaire is to help EACH of us to review our use of our time and talents both within and outside of the church. We request each member of this church family to prayerfully consider how you could give your time, talents and resources to play your part.

By ticking the boxes in the 'new' column you are registering your interest to explore this ministry. Please do not be reluctant to volunteer in case you take on a job for life Every role in the church is open to regular review so that none of us end up too long in a position or beyond the time when we should consider a new challenge. There are seasons for all things.

Please complete by 28th February
