The work of Rosebank is divided into 9 clusters, summarized below. We would like each member of Rosebank to be involved in one of these clusters—of course to a greater or a lesser degree, depending on each person’s present situation. Prayerfully consider where you could make a contribution, however small, to the more efficient service delivery of Rosebank to our members and to the wider community.
