What an exciting time for our fellowship at Derriford URC! Last month we heard that we have a Minister exploring the call to Derriford and now we have met with him and his wife. By the time you read this we may have voted at our extraordinary Church Meeting on whether to issue a call. We can see that God has been preparing the ground over the past few months and this is an ideal time for us to be reviewing our vision for Derriford URC. You will be aware of the words of wisdom in the Proverbs (29:18) ‘Where there is no vision, the people perish…’ – so the main focus of our Church Meeting on Sunday 19th May will be to share our ideas about the future and the doors that God is opening for our future mission in this place.
The Elders have also spent much time in prayer and in sharing together, out of that process we identified the need to hear from every member of our church community and find ways to hear from those in our community – so that any new vision incorporates all that God is saying to us.
For we are a people who believe in the ‘priesthood of all believers’ – we know that we have direct access to God and God is able to speak through each one of us. May God bless us, as we discern the way of Christ together!
