Worship & Education

 

The aim of Worship and Education Ministry (WEM) is to work with the minister to provide opportunities for worship and education that will help people to express and deepen their relationship with God and to live out and build their faith in an informed and fruitful manner.

One of BNNUC’s current goals is to empower, inspire and enthuse its members to express their love of God and love of others by enhancing faith through inclusiveness, different styles of worship, diverse topic of studies, group discussions, workshops and organised pastoral care.

Diverse styles of worship involve new liturgies, hymns and songs, new forms of prayer, and thought provoking matter additional to Scripture.

Regular study groups on various topics have been organised and monthly alternative styles of worship (“Reflect & Refresh” – contemplative/reflective style worship; “Contemporary/All-age/Fresh Expression/Messy Church” style worship) have been offered alternately on the afternoon of second Sunday of the month.

We encourage continued lay involvement in leading worship, invite occasional “pulpit” guests and endeavour to create a peace-filled and relaxed worship atmosphere.

WEM is also supporting and advocating the ministry to children and young people and seeking opportunities to enhance relationship and combined activities with the Grace Community Church children and young people.
