Our church is a Local Shared Ministry church . Local Shared Ministry is a way of structuring ministry so that the local church is responsible for establishing priorities for mission and ministry.
It is not a programme or a system, but a way of being, a culture.
Local Shared Ministry helps us to recognise
- That every congregation is a ministering community, not a community gathered around a minister.
- That every member is a minister.
- That all the baptised have gifts and to release them for the good of the church.
Local Shared Ministry has led to the growth and development of all members of the Marchwiel Parish family. Services involve many participants.
