Welcome to The Church At The Pines
We are an informal group of Christians who meet together on Sundays to worship God. Our aim is to do this in a way that is meaningful and friendly, discovering the relevance of faith in life
today. We are an Anglican/ Methodist Church and welcome all ages to come and enjoy our weekly Sunday services (11am) and our weekday activities.
At our annual Covenant Service held on the 6th September we welcomed Catherine as our new Methodist minister. Catherine has come to this part of God’s Kingdom to serve Him by being a
minister in this circuit by leading worship, offering pastoral care and giving us leadership as we develop our mission and ministry at the Church@thePines.
There are many ways of serving. Sometime ago Hazel and I visited Vietnam, a country that for 50 years was torn apart by war. We met two really remarkable people. One was a young Roman Catholic nun
who had given up a promising career as a children’s doctor in a university hospital to work in a small hospital in the city of Hue, treating the poorest people in that community.
The other was a Buddhist nun who was running an orphanage for children born with various handicaps from the residual effects of Agent Orange, tones of which had been dropped by the US air force
during the Vietnam War.
We can all serve God without being a minister or giving our lives to work in orphanages. There are lots of needs for people to serve within our growing church. Can we each pray that God will guide
us into ways of serving Him and, equally important, that we respond.
