Confirmation Class is what I do early on Thursday evenings. The picture shows most of the group.
I am starting to feel like I am settling in. Time is tight and I certainly did not spend my 15 hours on my church studies this week as I ought to. But I do think that I am settling into a rhythm. I am learning to see my work as running one church of 500 people, rather than thinking I have two jobs with smaller churches which I somehow have to juggle. As I result, I am delegating ruthlessly. I had hoped to have a secretary, but I am discovering that ordinary church members are willing to do admin jobs and do them well and conscientiously. I just need to get over being afraid to ask!
In 2015, I am a newly ordained Methodist minister working, mostly, at Parow Methodist Church in Cape Town, but also in other churches of the Tygerberg Circuit. Previously I have been at:
2009 - Shaw Memorial Methodist Church in Grahamstown
2010-2011 Seth Mokitimi Methodist Seminary
2012-2013 - Mitchells Plain Methodist Churches
