Twenty five new lay ministers were admitted in a ceremony conducted at the St Peters Anglican Church in Khayelitsha last Sunday.

This was a wonderful service as it highlighted the growth and development of the parish. It also signalled spiritual growth and unity amongst the congregants.

Father Trevor Steyn who conducted the sermon wished and equipped the new layministers.

In his sermon he said “as you are called by God to serve his people go out there and make a difference to the world and draw your hearts into deep reference of God.”

He emphasized that they are called to serve people and be part of God’s solution not be part of the problem.

He ended up his sermon to say that he is praying for them because he knows that the world is ready to attack them and the powers of the darkness are not happy to see them serving God’s people, but God’s spirit will empower them , therefore they must be Faithfull in their calling.

It was a very special moment to see these new vibrant and beautiful souls humbling before God as they are called to serve and I must say his sermon touched most of us as old layminsiters as we were reminded about our calling to follow the footsteps of Jesus.
