What's my niche?
When you move to a new church it can take a little while to find your niche, the same as with any other move. I have gone from somewhere where I organised the morning tea after the service, ran retreats and workshops, made sure that everything was there for communion, prayed with people after the service, was on the roster for reading and doing the intercessory prayers, to somewhere where, at the moment, I am not involved in anything.
All the places to serve already have people rostered on.
So I'm going to take some time to see how things are done, when, and by whom. I'm going to look for the place where my gifts best fit; where I can best serve the congregation and the community.
Eventually, I will find my place.
