Dear Beecroft Congregation,
Presbytery has conducted its Ordinary Visitation to your Church. It wants to encourage you that we saw many good things. Your church has a real family atmosphere and many people are working hard to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. You have a faithful and godly ministry team.
It recognises that you are facing a number of difficult and significant issues at the moment, especially with regard to your ministry, manse and finances. We hope that our report and recommended actions will help you to resolve them.
It believes that this is a critical time for your church. You really need to all work together as a team to manage the issues you’re facing. The Presbytery and Trustees will also be working with your Session and Committee of Management to help you through this process. Your Minister and Youth Minister need your full support as they try to serve you. Your Session and Committee of management also need your support as they try to lead and guide the church and manage your finances and property. Your church needs you to give generously of yourselves and your finances if you are to make it through this time.
We will pray for you in our Presbytery meeting. We hope that you, too, will be fervent and persistent in prayer for your church. Please remember that Jesus is our risen Saviour and King and that our labour in the Lord is not in vain.
Sydney North Presbytery
