Mission and Ministry

last updated on: 30th Jun 2016

A warm welcome

Each one of us is challenged by the Gospel to become more deeply aware of God's love for us in Christ, to rejoice, delight in and respond to that love for us. One of the ways in which we respond to God’s love is in our service of God and one another. We might use the language of being "called" to a "ministry", there being many different forms that such ministry can take. Whatever form such ministry takes, it will bear witness to Christ and Christ’s love for us, it will be "Christ-shaped". So putting mission and ministry together isn’t just a bit of administrative convenience; ministry is about mission (witnessing and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ) and mission is about ministry (proclaiming God’s love in Christ in our service of one another). 

Every one of us is called to mission and ministry in one way or another and in the following web-pages there is information about advisory services and practical resources to support individuals and churches for mission and ministry. If you are looking for details about one of the formal ministries of the church then you will find here information about nurturing, training and supporting those called to particular ministries.

One last thing - if you can’t find what you’re looking for then please contact us – we’re keen to help!
