Church Council has written to the Blackwood Church of Christ with an invitation to start a conversation about ways we can further cooperate together in outreach and ministry in the Blackwood community. The Church of Christ Elders have responded favourably to this invitation.
We now invite you to share your thoughts and feelings about this conversation with Elders and other members of Council. We will keep you informed about this ongoing conversation with the Blackwood Church of Christ.
Our two churches have been working closely together over many years on a number of projects, including Beacon emergency relief, Kids Hope, and various activities organised through the Mitcham Hills Inter-Church Council. We want to see whether there is scope for our two churches to better achieve God’s mission in our community through working even more closely together, and we would like to discover this by the time of our AGM in November this year.
A special congregational meeting is planned for Sunday the 19th of August 2012 (following a Combined Service at 10am – put the time in your diaries now), to discuss this matter, and to hopefully approve the Profile that we must submit before calling a new minister.
