Presbytery of Lothian
PARISH PROFILE 2017
Our Vision …
Members of Chalmers Memorial Church seek...
- to affirm the love of God for all people, in worship and outreach opportunities;
- to take on the responsibilities of Christian Discipleship by following the example and teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ;
- to show God's love to the people of Cockenzie & Port Seton and its environs, by witnessing to the gospel of Jesus Christ and reaching out especially to those we know who are in need;
- to share our Christian values with local services aiming to build a caring community
Our next minister …
We are looking for a minister to join us, who will work enthusiastically both for us and with us in three particular areas:
Communicating the truths and values of the gospel with us, sharing the sacraments with reverence, warmth and humour, and making use of all resources available - including guiding the worship team.
Being our Ambassador - maintaining, developing and finding new ways to link with different age-groups in our community while sharing in the day-to-day life of the parish.
Providing support and insight into pastoral care and visiting those who are identified as being in particular need.
Inspired by our faith in Jesus Christ we will work alongside our new minister sharing our skills and enthusiasm as possibilities for development are identified.
If you think it is possible God might call you to our church, please read on as we tell you something of our story and our context.
Having been given permission to call a minister with unrestricted tenure, we are now able to advertise our vacancy, and will be happy to receive applications from Ministers who read our Parish Profile and feel an urge to know more...
