An introduction from our new Church and Community Worker (Oct 2021):
My name is Sarah Rose, and I am the new Church and Community Worker at Heaton Mersey Methodist Church. I have been involved in outreach work for nearly twenty years now, firstly as a volunteer, and later as a lay worker. My first role was as a team leader at a Holiday Club in the summer of 2003. I am very much looking forward to getting involved with all aspects of life at Heaton Mersey.
One of my favourite aspects of worship has to be music and singing. There are so many hymns that I love, although Lord, for the Years would probably come out on top. For me, it is a constant reminder that God is with us throughout the changes and challenges of life. It also shows us the importance of praying for our world, and for all God’s people. For a similar reason, one of my favourite Bible verses would have to be Jeremiah 29: 11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Outside of community work, my big passion is the theatre. Over the years, I have been involved with many productions, doing everything from costumes to lighting, and of course, acting. In the largest role I ever did, I only left the stage for two pages out of the whole play.
I look forwards to meeting you all soon. If you see me around, please do come over and say hello.
