Pastor Lindsay Mayes along with his wife Erma concluded their ministry at the Elizabeth Church of Christ this month after 23 years! It has been a very positive season as the congregation grew and the facilities extensively developed. The farewell service on the 10th December was well attended including the Mayor of Playford who expressed appreciation for Lindsay’s contribution to both the church and wider community.
In August last year Lindsay & Erma believe God called them to lead a new church plant adventure in partnership with the Baptist Churches of SA. Pastor John Bond from Dynamic Church Planting International has helped Lindsay in this new journey and preached at the church plant recently. The new church was launched this year on October 29th. From January 2018 Lindsay will be full time with the Andrews Farm Community Church outreach as a Baptist Minister.
The Elizabeth Church of Christ has appointed Brent Rutland as their Senior Pastor as he works alongside Youth Pastor Ben Rowe.
