I am very pleased to announce that next year we will have Kathy Powell on staff two days a week, working as a Community Chaplain to reach out to the needy and the fringe people in our community.
Anglican Deaconess Ministries have been offering scholarships for training, both theory and practical, in Community Chaplaincy. Kathy has been successful in the application we submitted for her to study at Mary Andrews College, so she’ll be doing that as well as two days a week ministry in the Parish.
This is an exciting development and I am certain Kathy will enhance our staff team with her enthusiasm, energy and gifts, as well as make a significant contribution to the ministry we have to the people on the fringes of our church life.
Please pray for Kathy as she prepares for this role commencing in February, that God may prepare her for all the challenges ahead and that she might be guided and directed to know how best to share the love of Jesus with those who desperately need to know it.
