Fit for Purpose 2015 / 2016
A church fit for purpose is called to have a prophetic voice in the world, and to provide a place of transformation. The "church" is always the people - and a church fit for purpose is to be made up of people of service and outreach.
From our General Assembly at the start of June past, we have been challenged to live up to our calling to be a caring fellowship, welcoming the stranger and learning from one another, valuing the gifts of each individual, while offering prayer and pastoral support to all in need.
The Presbyterian Church in Ireland's Fit for Purpose theme for 2015 is "A Caring Fellowship". Christ’s heart of compassion is a Bible study resource based on the transformation Jesus brought to different lives He touched in the Gospels. It has been created to help churches engage with this year’s theme.
