Welcoming of Stephen, Sarah, and James Urmston


With great thank to God, this morning we welcomed Stephen, Sarah, and James to St Bart's, commissioning Stephen as our Children and Families Minister. At our 9.30AM service, we also commissioned the St Bart's Kids team. Stephen will have responsibility for overseeing, leading, and growing the children (aged 0-12) and families ministry at St Bart’s. As Children and Families Minister he will also help shape and implement our children and families strategy, identify and train leaders, disciple families, coordinate and participate in Sunday ministries (such as crèche, Sunday School, and our approach to children and worship), lead and coordinate our weekly Friday Kids Club, and liaise with other children’s ministries in our church (such as mainly music and religious instruction in schools). Please pray for Stephen and the entire family as they settle into Toowoomba and St Bart's and take the opportunity to say hello to them soon. Please also pray for the children and families minister will continue to grow and flourish for the glory of God.
