"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many." John 10:45
Galatians 5:14 encourages us to ‘serve one another humbly in love’. There is a tremendous richness in a local church family with all the different ages and backgrounds trying to live according to the servant love of Jesus. We are challenged by God to accept one another and to show practical love in word and action. This mainly happens through relationships within the church family and within small groups and other church groups.
In addition the Pastoral Care Team, which includes those who are SPA’s (Southwark Pastoral Auxiliaries) meet regularly to consider how to come alongside church members with particular needs. The Prayer Ministry Team, led by Viv Dunning, is available after Sunday services to pray for and with individuals in their various concerns, life situations and hopes.
