Message from our Minister – Rev. Jonathan Humphrey

Jon and Kate Humphrey

Dear Friends,

The last couple of months seem to have flown by with lots of activity and things going on, and lots of people getting involved. In the latest edition of “The Anchor” you can read about what happened this year during our 10 day outreach with the YWAM team to local schools, the success of Messy Church, the “Tuesday Coffee and Cake” mystery outing and lots, lots more. Kate and I are looking forward to our summer break on holiday and at the REFUEL conference in Fochabers. I know that many of you will also be taking a break over these next couple of months, and so my prayer for us all is that:

 …….times of refreshing may come from the Lord,  and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus. Acts 3: 19-20.

This is an amazing promise to us from the Lord, but in this passage the promise is linked to repentance – changing the way we think, so that increasingly we receive “the mind of Christ” and His refreshing presence.  Getting away from our daily routines, even for a short while, can provide those opportunities for the Holy Spirit to gently change the way we are thinking and work on some of those outlooks and attitudes which are not the same as His!

In this issue, we have also included some photos of our elders. I was prompted a few months back to get going with this task when somebody said that they were not sure who the elders were in our church.  Our elders are called to the task of spiritual oversight and leadership of our congregations (1 Timothy 3) and I am so grateful for the diligence and hard work they bring to this “office”, and for our newest elders at Kirkhill – John McLellan and Angie Cosens. The elders meet together as the Kirk Session about 6 times a year and are responsible for leading on all aspects of church life.  Your leadership needs your support and prayer (Hebrews 13: 17), particularly over these next few years as we consider the implications of the Presbytery Plan (to be published in September) and the implementation of our own 5 year plan.

May you all know His refreshing presence this summer.

Yours in Jesus,

Jonathan
