Giving Time is part of finding and fulfilling the purpose of our Christian service, fulfilling God’s plan for our lives and helping others to fulfil theirs too.
Part of it is to look at how we can develop in-house gifts and service, and where our foci should be. These include service within our local church, sending out to other churches, Ministry (Lay or Ordained), Evangelism, Overseas & Mission, and spotting and matching – identifying possible gifts and encouraging people to join in and get involved.
All of us should be offering our lives and our daily work as if we were doing it for Jesus.
It is important to honour what people are already doing and how this is engaged with local church, affirming and encouraging people.
