I have been thoroughly enjoying my visits to churches, seeing a range of worship services and styles, and am keen to lock in dates to attend more of these over the next year. We are currently exploring ways of assisting churches with their growth and leadership development and will provide more information on this soon. In the meantime, I would love to hear from any churches specifically interested in discussing ways that we can help you.
There are many great community connections being established across our states and we will be endeavouring to capture as many of these stories as we can in the next few months so that we can inspire everyone with these collective efforts. If you have any quality written testimony or video footage that meets privacy guidelines, we would love to receive this from you via our office so as to encourage others.
One of our agencies, St. Kilda Gatehouse, is a ministry run by Christians dedicated to building a place of belonging among those who have experienced or are experiencing family violence, drug addiction, homelessness, poverty, and mental health issues, whilst also assisting women engaged in street based sex work. It was a privilege to see their operations first hand. The work is reliant on community support and donations, and their op shop would also love to receive quality goods from churches able to help by collecting and delivering these. Visit www.stkildagatehouse.org.au for more information.
From the CCVT Board
At the most recent meeting of the CCVT Board on July 26, the Board was pleased to have Andrew Menzies, Principal of Stirling Theological College, join them to give an update on the current and future work of the College. He and the Board discussed a variety of possibilities related to leadership development.
The Board also spent time considering implications and options related to the National Redress Scheme and will update Affiliates on this soon. Similarly, a new procedure for upholding the Code of Ethics policy (see below) is currently being discussed and is due to be released shortly.
Please continue to hold the Board in prayer as they lead CCVT and provide guidance for our wider Movement.
