GM3 – A NEW MINISTRY for 2021!
In response to changing needs within the community and the effects of Covid.19, Gillespie Memorial Church merged our previous projects F3(Food for Families) and The Glen Ministry into a new venture, GM3 which came into being on January 1st 2021.
GM3 will aim to provide practical, emotional and spiritual support to members of our local community, which will ultimately be through 3 functions using our multi-purpose Gillespie Centre as the hub of operations:
- Meet practical needs whether food, fuel or crisis on a one-off basis and refer to agencies to assist with the root cause of the need.
- Provide a level of pastoral support to meet the emotional needs of those who approach us and require longer term support.
- Establish a Workplace Chaplaincy to meet the emotional needs of those in the wider business community, particularly in view of the challenges faced as a result of Covid:19
The ethos of GM3 is encompassed by the words of Jesus, found in John 15.12 – “Love one Another”
We as a Christian community know the need to rely solely on God`s love for us and so, in his strength we aim to love others unconditionally.
