Captain Brian Crowden and Lieutenant Joy Crowden will be heading up the new Chinese speaking congregation commencing here at Ringwood on February 23rd 2014. Ringwood Chinese Congregation is not a separate entity, it falls under the ministry umbrella of the Ringwood Corps. The Mandarin speaking worship congregation will be separate to other English speaking congregations. Brian and Joy will be appointed here as Associate Officers with responsibility for the Chinese Congregation. On Sundays, the Chinese children will join with the English in Kids Church at 10am, while the adults share a small group bible study in the cream brick building at the top of our property. After the English 10am worship service, we will all join together for morning tea, and then at 1pm the Chinese group will meet for worship in Mandarin in the main church hall. Mid week, Joy will assist us with families attending mainly music and other activities where Chinese people are also attending and help us in translation. This is very exciting! We look forward to welcoming them.
