It is a common saying that “a Church grows warm through fellowship”. To generate the initial energy, we have organized the various groups that make up the directorate around a wheel known as the Fellowship Cycle. This enables us create a synergy among the various groups and prevent any group from acting as a destination instead of a pointer to greater work with God. It starts with the Welcome group, then Care group, the Fellowship group and finally the Discipleship group. The idea is to welcome people warmly into our midst, care for them until they begin to enjoy fellowship. Fellowship with them until they desire and become disciples and join others in working with God.
Resources from the Fellowship Directorate:
The Welcome Group
The welcome group addresses the needs of first time worshippers after service and liaises with the Church office for proper record keeping.
The Care Group
This consists of The Welfare Group and the Fellowship Committee/Visitation Group. The welfare Group focuses on attending to the needs of the poor, while cases of support for temporarily distressed brethren will be referred to the Pastoral Affairs Committee. This department raises Funding through charity related activities like Charity sales, Charity walks and annual “remember thy neighbour charity donations”
The Fellowship group/Visitation
This committee is a new creation that addresses follow-up calls to new visitors, visitations to our members and act as a central body that will address fellowship issues. This group works hand in hand with the care group and the discipleship group to meet members specified spiritual and material needs.
