INTERCULTURAL - NORTHERN PRESBYTERY

The Bible employs various metaphors to depict the church, such as people, family, body, temple, and new creation. These metaphors not only serve as visual representations of what it means to be a church but also define and influence the church's purpose, its relationship with God, and how its members interact with each other and the world. In 2023, Northern Presbytery initiated along this journey of what an intercultural church within it's presbytery looks like and introduced the role of an Intercultural Facilitator, accompanied by the establishment of an advisory group for a three-year term. As a collective, we eagerly anticipate celebrating our presbytery's intercultural worship, regardless of its form. This step towards promoting intercultural worship within the Northern Presbytery marks a significant milestone in embracing diversity and fostering unity. The Intercultural Facilitator will play a crucial role in bridging cultural gaps and nurturing a sense of community among members from various backgrounds. With the advisory group's guidance and support, we are poised to embark on a journey of exploration and appreciation of different traditions, languages, and customs. Together, we look forward to enriching our worship experiences with a vibrant tapestry of cultural expressions, creating a welcoming and harmonious space where all voices are heard and valued. Working together for a better future.
