Serving Teams: PA

For 10 long years, Pete Horne has lead the team at RFC that provides sound to our Sunday meetings.  He has faithfully toiled on a weekend and has asked for large amounts of money at periodic intervals to further enhance and grow this area of church life.  As the church has grown so have the complexities of delivering great sound from our musicians whom increasingly express themselves in different ways and with a seemingly growing number of instruments.

There is often a misconception that when it comes to PA there needs to be some prior knowledge of how sound works and how to put together a sound system.  The reality is though that if you know what a plug is and you know how to put it in to a wall, you are qualified for 90% of what needs doing.  When it comes to PA, the onus is on setting it up rather than having to blend the sounds.  No prior technical experience is necessary, just a willingness to arrive at 8:30 in the morning and learn how the system goes together. 

If you are not yet serving in the church or are looking for a new opportunity then this could well be for you.  A chance to gather with a different bunch of people, to learn some new skills and to serve Jesus through bringing sound to a growing congregation is there for the taking.  I know that Pete currently has opportunities for people to serve both in the morning and in the evening meetings. For more information about how to sign up either seek out Pete on a Sunday, contact the church office or let me know in the comments area below.

Two week countdown to Alpha!

On Tuesday 17th April at 8pm, we will be starting our latest Alpha course.  On Sunday we will be celebrating the fact that Jesus isn't just dead, but is very much alive.  The fact that he rose again and the tomb was empty gives us great confidence in our God for life now and our future eternity.  This deep security that we can have in Jesus is something we are called to share with others, but sometimes their questions can be a bit a tricky.

This is where Alpha comes in.  It's a perfect opportunity for you to invite someone to a place where friends or family can discuss their questions and hear some different perspectives of how those questions can be handled.

It might be that you are just coming back to Jesus and want to run through the reasons you believe what you believe.  This is your opportunity.  Come along and enjoy discussing your faith with others and once again, bring up any doubts or confusions you may have.

We keep doing Alpha, because people keep coming and keep meeting Jesus for themselves.  Why don't you join us.
