At St Mary's we want to support working people. Two thirds of our adult congregation are engaged in paid work, and many more work in the home or in a voluntary capacity. We spend most of our time at work!
The Bible teaches us that:
- God made work to be good, but our experience of work is frustrated in a fallen world
- The purpose of our work is to serve Jesus and bring glory to God, whatever we do
- For Christians, Jesus restores the dignity and purpose of our work, as we serve others with humility and love, and as we look forward to serving him in the new creation
How can we put all this into practice? Click on the links below to explore.
