Ministry is Service to others and is more, much more, than the work of the Minister in any Church. Orchardhill’s Ministry Task Group tries to recognise, channel and use the gifts and talents of all the Congregation, in order to strengthen and encourage established organizations and groups, and furthermore to encourage and establish new Ministries around the gifts of God’s people.
Elders have regular contact with all members of the Congregation, as well as adherents, and are well placed to report to the Task Group on the gifts and talents shown by members in their Districts. The Elders are also responsible for Pastoral visiting, and are assisted in the care of the elderly, the housebound, the chronically ill, and those who are in hospital, or have been bereaved, by a Pastoral Visiting Team which is the responsibility of the Ministry Task Group, as well as the Minister.
Everyone has gifts and talents, and there are many jobs waiting to be done within Orchardhill and outside in the local community. If you are able and would like to help in any way, please email the Church Secretary (Secretary@orchardhill.org.uk) or phone 638 3604.
