Everyone is important! One of the joys of being a part of the fellowship at Scorrier is the way that folk look out for one another, without expecting official recognition. There is a genuine concern for the physical wellbeing and spiritual welfare of others.
The Bible describes the church as a united body, made up of different parts. Every person has been given different gifts by God that are to be used for the good of others (Romans 12:4-8). This teaches us that every person in ‘the body’ is valued and has an important role to play in serving the wider fellowship.
However the Bible does recognise and affirm the need to set aside certain individuals for leadership. There are 2 main leadership roles outlined in the bible…
Elders: Who have the shared responsibility for spiritual oversight
Deacons: Who have the shared responsibility of practical support
Together our elders and deacons also make up the charity trustees
The Wells family arrived in Cornwall in 2020. Colin’s married to Hannah and they have three children, Mia, Caleb and Keziah. After working for Christians in Sport for 11 years Colin moved into local church ministry back in 2016. A precious calling and a great privilege! The whole family love sport and exploring the great outdoors!
Mary and I moved to Cornwall in 2010! The Bible tells me I am a saint – a sinner saved by God’s amazing grace – saved to serve our Heavenly Father, for His honour and glory. I am being saved, I am being sanctified and one day I will be glorified and will be with our wonderful Saviour – the Lord Jesus Christ – forever and will be like Him. What a hope! Hallelujah! What a Saviour!
