We always have roles to fill and opportunities to get stuck into serving at Mutley – all you need to do is ask!
We believe that as Christians we are God’s hands and feet in the world. He cannot do what He does unless people use the gifts and skills that he has given them: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms” (1 Peter 4:10 NIV).
Why serve in your church?
God works through local church all across the world. And the church is us, a group of people with many varied and complementary skills, all working together. As the apostle Paul puts it “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many” (1 Corinthians 12:12-14 NIV)
What ways can you serve?
There’s a huge range of tasks that need to be done within the church so we’re sure to be able to find something that matches your gifts, and passions. This could be anything from serving coffee after a service, to helping in one of our children’s groups, to visiting the sick and housebound, to carrying out one of the many admin jobs that need to be done.
Some tasks need a special set of skills, some can be done by anyone. Some tasks need to be done on a Sunday, some can be done mid-week. Some during the day, others in the evening. Some are very much ‘front of house’, some are more behind the scenes.
If you feel called to serve in the church then please speak to an elder or staff team member and we will work with you to find out where your gifts would be best placed.
