St James Community Visiting Team (SJCVT) – Sharing Good News
“The harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few, therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest” (Luke 10:2).
The aim of the visiting team is to visit every house in the Parish (on a rotation basis) and make contact with at least one of the residents in each house where possible. We look for opportunities to share the gospel with the help of personal testimony and appropriate literature (and of course the Holy Spirit!) with anyone who will listen to us and engage with us. We have been operating as the SJCVT since the spring of 2015 and are currently a team of six and go visiting door to door around the parish in teams of two. We meet to pray in the Parish Centre in the upstairs prayer room on Monday mornings from 09.30. Usually at least one team goes out every week as and when people are available, and at different times in order to find people in. The vast majority of people we meet are at least polite, and the Lord has given us many opportunities to plainly share the gospel.
The current team, shown below, urgently need more ladies! If you think this is something the Lord might be prompting you to do (male or female) please speak to any one of the team to find out more.
