| Year of
New Beginnings 2016
Our Mission and Outreach
activities have been themed since
2013 starting with our Year of the
Family. In 2014 we followed that
with a Year of Friendship and last
year was our Year of Challenge.
Our theme for 2016 is New
God's love for us is
demonstrated very clearly by his
forgiveness of our sins and that
allows us New Beginnings. God
wants everyone to have a New
Beginning in a relationship with
him through Jesus Christ, his only
Son, our Lord and King. God asks
us to pray and listen to Him and
He is always with us, offering us
those New Beginnings. What we need
to do is to respond.
Our choice of this theme
is to remind us of God's blessings
and so that we can give ourselves
and those around us New Beginnings
too. This isn't the same as the
New Year's resolutions that often
have a short lived existence. New
Beginnings means setting things on
a strong foundation and in a
direction that they can sustain.
If we consider for a few moments
the parts of our lives where we
want New Beginnings, then there
are likely to be plenty to go at.
New Beginnings in our
faith and belief in God's love for
us, should be at the top of the
list, so that through Him and His
wisdom and blessings, He can
really help us to make progress in
all the areas where we want New
The Mission and Outreach
activities in 2016 are there to
give us the opportunities to
engage in New Beginnings in our
faith journey and how we might
invite others to have New
Beginnings and share in our faith,
through spreading the Gospel
message and prayerfully following
Jesus in our daily lives.
