romans 12 6

It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Ephesians 4:11-13


discover your spiritual gifts for serving in christ's church


The church needs you. Not because it needs people to fill positions within the organisation but because you are an important and integral part of the body of Christ.

If you would like to explore where your spiritual gifts lie and where you could use those gifts, read on. This is for your own personal reflection and discovery.

Below is a list of some of the Spiritual gifts described in the Bible. Take a few moments to consider which gifts you think you have been given for the building up of God's church.
