領導團隊

領導團隊

許多教堂通常是按等級結構運作的–牧師在等級的最上層,其下為教區理事會,理事會之下是主內兄弟姊妹。 如果某人有好主意,通常必須由理事會去找牧師,然後等待牧師的決定或行動,導致牧師工作過度,多人不满。

在我們教會,我們將教區理事會減少到只有五位成員,即牧師和三位執事。


教會的其餘工作由八支教會成員組成的小組分別擔任。對教會生活的某個方面比較感興趣的人互相保持聯繫,當出現好的想法時,該組成員就可以進行討論和實踐,並將其付諸行動。

The eight teams who care for the ministry of our church are grouped together in line with our church’s motto:
Jesus – communicated, celebrated, demonstrated.

Jesus - communicated through His Word, involves the following teams:
Children’s Ministry Team
Mission and Outreach Team
Discipleship Team

Jesus – celebrated through Worship, involves the following teams:
Sunday Worship Team
Special Services team

Jesus – demonstrated through Welcome, involves the following teams:
Sunday Welcome Team
Social Fellowship Team
Communications Team.

The Children’s Ministry Team looks after the important work of Sunday School, Kids Church and our Mothers’ Group.

The Mission and Outreach Team is responsible for supporting our missionaries and encouraging the work of mission in our church. We support several missions agencies financially by tithing the donations received at our church services, and spiritually by prayer.

The Discipleship Team are responsible for cell groups, Bible studies, New Member classes, baptism classes, the Sunday morning Welcomers and Youth Group.

The Sunday Worship Team coordinates the music teams, the technical people, the readings and prayers, everything that goes into making the Sunday service what it is.

The Social Fellowship Team organises our annual church camp, and all our special meals and events, like the Chinese celebrations of Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn Festival, and our Passover meal just before Easter.

The Communications Team is responsible for announcements, publicity, The Voice, the church website and signage.

The Sunday Welcome Team looks after welcoming newcomers, recognising and acknowledging every person who comes; Sunday lunch, regular newcomers’ information lunches, pastoral visits and providing meals for those in need. They care about seeing everyone connected in, so no-one sits here alone and unseen.
