Messages from the Minister



SEPTEMBER 5th 2021

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

What an exciting privilege it is for my family and I to have officially started our

ministry at St. David’s. We want to extend a huge thank-you to everyone who put in

such a big effort to make the induction service such a welcoming event that really

brought glory to God.

The author of Ecclesiastes (most probably wise king Solomon) famously said that to

everything there is a season. Life on earth is a constant series of changes, some big,

some small. Even, positive changes can be a bit daunting!

Some changes are thrust upon us, such as the pandemic and we are left reeling and

scrambling to adapt. But other changes, we embrace and even pray for with great

joy, think of the birth of a baby or redecorating a home.

As a church family, we are now embracing another big change as Kat and I begin our

gospel partnership with St. David’s. A special and exciting time, but with fresh

leadership, the Holy Spirit often brings fresh transformation. Positive new things are

often exciting, but they can also be a little bit scary too, because when God leads us

to a new season, He often asks us to let go of things from the past.

Perhaps, we will retain many familiar aspects of mission and ministry, we will

certainly try new things too and we will let go of others. Our God and the gospel He

commands us to share are eternal and changeless, but the ways in which we serve

Him and reach out must be flexible and adaptive to the time and season in which we

find ourselves.

There are all sorts of training, courses, strategies and ideas, thought up by the

greatest minds of the contemporary church to help us be on the cutting edge of

reaching out to our community. However what is most important is allowing the Holy

Spirit to flow through us as a family of believers, bringing a fresh vision for how God

wishes to use us for His glory.

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to follow the Lord’s lead in this thrilling

new chapter of St. David’s story. Let’s commit to praying reverently and with fervour

for the Spirit of God to come sweeping through us anew!

In the love of Christ,

Rev’d Brett

It was a lovely late Summer’s day for Brett’s first service at St. David’s on September 5th

We were able to be in the grounds after the service where some of us to stayed in fellowship to welcome the family with a lovely cake and refreshments.

Brett, Katerina, Micah and Alfred - we welcome you - and pray that you will be happy and fulfilled here in Broom Leys as we all look forward together to a new and exciting chapter for our church family.
