Our guidelines for sharing and showing the love of Jesus in our church and community, stem from 1 John 3:16
We know what real love is because Jesus gave up His life for us. So we ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.
To enable this to happen in a practical way we have developed teams who have specific tasks and responsibilities.
HOSPITAL & CLINIC VISITING
We have joined with the Anglican Church in Paphos (Pafos) to provide a regular visiting team for all the local hospitals, where we will be welcomed. These include:
Blue Cross & St George's Hospital, St Michael's Hospice, Iasis Hospital, Evangelismos Hospital, the General Hospital and the Virgin Mary Home.
Our aim is to provide a listening ear and help, where we are able, to solve any difficulties arising through illness. We try to visit all English speaking patients on weekdays; this includes visitors and residents.
The service is carried out by volunteers who feel they have a calling for the work and there is no charge unless purchases have been requested by the patient, and in this case reimbursement of the cost will normally be required.

No matter how big, no matter how small the problem!
If Jesus is interested in it, as He has promised He is, then so are we!
We currently have an Elder, who is available for discussion of any problems or difficulties which you may be experiencing.
There is no discrimination between spiritual, practical or moral difficulties - we are there for you. Please don’t be afraid to ask for assistance, we will pray for God's guidance through the Holy Spirit and help you as much as we are able in complete confidence.
Please contact Elder Val Morgan - Tel: (00357) 99-407091, or any other church member, in the first instance.
TENDER AND LOVING CARE (T.A.L.C)
T.A.L.C was set-up by NTCC for anyone needing a visit or practical assistance. Any member of the church who is ill, needing food, driving to hospital or any other assistance, please contact our T.A.L.C co-ordinator Edna Roberts on 97 650960.
PAPHOS AREA CHURCHES TOGETHER (PACT)
Currently, the leaders of several Paphos churches are periodically meeting and working together.
We are celebrating our differences and working together to see God make a difference in our area. Our Father made us all unique and so we are seeking to experience unity within our diversity, and using this to bring people from many walks of life to hear the Gospel.
Ministers and Elders meet together for prayer and fellowship. There are also joint church meetings where we all praise and worship together, which have brought blessings in abundance.
Easter, Pentecost and Christmas joint events have proved a great success and it is hoped that this aspect of our joint fellowship will increase over time.
CHRISTIAN MUM'S TOGETHER
NTCC are reaching out to Christian mothers, to give them a time of fellowship, for them to LISTEN to each other, ENCOURAGE one another and to PRAY for each other, TOGETHER as MUM'S. There is a weekly meeting every Friday, 3-5pm at Paliomonastiro in Peyia (On the road to St George). This is a great venue with a play park and large grass area for the children, with the use of an indoor room in winter weather.
This event takes place at the Crown Resort Hotel in Coral Bay at 9am on the last Saturday of each month, where ladies from all walks of life come together in fellowship over breakfast, then are blessed with a message from a speaker.
