Feedback from your Board of Management

Greetings to all you special people of the United Church – Hermanus.

We held our monthly meeting on Tuesday afternoon and wish to share the following with you.

Mission work support
Many of you will have met Louise Hindley and are aware of the work she is doing. A number of members have indicated that they wish to support her work financially. We have decided to adopt her as a Missionary and we will support her work. What that means is that we:
  • continue to pray for her and offer our encouragement
  • will keep regular contact to get feedback to be shared with all of us
  • will also support her financially.

Annual General Meeting
We are planning to hold this meeting late in June and will circulate the necessary documentation in due course. As you are aware we are still subject to restrictions in terms of gathering in numbers so we will have to ask members to book an advance. We will keep you informed well in advance of the meeting.

You may be aware that we have been working on updating our Constitution over the last year or so. This work has now been completed and we want to share the document with you before tabling it at the Annual General Meeting. We will be holding information sessions to which you are invited as follows: -
  • Tuesday, 11 May at 10:00 at Church
  • Wednesday, 19 May at 15:00 at Church
  • Thursday, 27 May at 17:00 at Church
Please will you book a spot at any of these days. We really want your participation so that our Constitution be understood by all. You'll find a PDF copy of the constitution draft just below - please be sure to go through this prior to attending a meeting.

Your call committee
Some progress has been made and two candidates will be spending some time with us. We have set our Services on 23 May and 13 June aside to allow each candidate to preach at United Church. Please pray with us that God will confirm the chosen candidate in all of our hearts and minds.

The impending retirement of James and Ken
It would appear that some of our congregation have the perception that James is being forced out of United. We have addressed this with James and he has confirmed that is not what he is experiencing.
James will however engage with the Eldership regarding his thoughts around how to take our church forward post Covid 19. Both James and Ken have the option to have their contracts extended until the age of seventy when they retire in terms of the current constitution. The date is October 2022 for James
and April 2024 for Ken. Please may we ask that any questions regarding the above be referred to me and that we all guard against being party to perceptions that might be devoid of the truth. Our prayer is that the remaining ministry of both James and Ken will be truly blessed and anointed with peace and tranquility.

Please feel free to call me or send me an email should you need any clarity.

Blessings to you all

This term we are kicking off with a new series called: UNEXPLORED BIBLE STORIES -The jungle is filled with areas of mystery and excitement that are still unexplored. In this series, we will study stories in the Bible that many of our kids (and parents!) will find new and unexplored. Along the way, they will learn valuable lessons about how to navigate through the jungles of life.

We look forward to seeing you on Sundays from 9h45 to 11h00.

In order to follow the Covid protocols, we still need you to book your place for each Sunday by WhatsApping the Lighthouse Kids group (072 416 8527) by Wednesday each week. Your moms and dads can also use this group to book a place at the 10am service while you’re at Lighthouse.

 Please follow by clicking on the video link below 
 and joining in the worship and prayers. 
 Let’s worship together.

We are humbled by the Lord's kindness, and by your faithfulness in giving, which makes it possible for us to continue doing His work through our church.
