WHAT IS MENTORING?

Learning, growth and spiritual development occurs in relationship. C.S. Lewis describes it well, ‘Think of me as a fellow patient in the same hospital who, having been admitted a little earlier, could give some advice.' Mentoring at PBC is an informal ministry that practices a simple principle: ‘Those who walk with the wise grow wise' (Proverbs 13:20). The goal is encouragement. Mentoring is not about a carefully outlined curriculum. It's about life-on-life relationships. Being mentored or being a mentor is one of the most important investments of time we can make.

WHAT'S THE TIME COMMITMENT?
This can be decided by you, but an hour, once or twice a month for one year is a good aim.

HOW DO I FIND A MENTOR?
Prayerfully think of people of your gender who you admire and would like to spend more time with. Approach them personally or contact Pastor Dave Baxter to talk it through. If there is no one you think you can approach, please speak to Jennifer on 01892 825590 or office@pemburybaptistchurch.org. Please let Dave or an Elder know that mentoring is taking place.

 

News & Announcements

Harvest Frugal Lunch - Sunday 24th September

All are welcome to attend a Frugal Lunch on Sunday 24th September, taking place after the Harvest morning service at Pembury Baptis Church.  The Harvest service will be very suitable for families, led by Tracy Gregory and entitled 'The Fruitful Gardener' - it will include a short drama amongst other worship. 
The Frugal Lunch will be free but we hope that you will donate the cost that you would have spent on a full roast dinner, to be given to a Harvest cause.  The actual charity will be announced nearer the time.  Please do book yourselves in (note any food intolerance please).
