Creating Successful Ministries - Following Jesus' Example


Dear Friends,

Thanks for all you do in supporting and coordinating a ministry or ministries within your parish community.  
As we know, the way we do church is changing. With the ramifications of Covid-19, along with our broader society and culture changes, the way in which we guide and support those in ministry is becoming a new and different prospect from what we’ve known in past decades.  How will we meet the challenges we face moving into the future?
It is for this reason that I would like to extend a special invitation to you to participate in the following opportunity, focusing upon the way we inspire, empower and equip those whom we serve as coordinators or ministry leaders. 
This short course has been run a number of times now with various groups with participants finding:

·         Renewed and deeper relationship with Jesus

·         Greater awareness and understanding of how to follow Jesus' example in supporting and guiding those in ministry

·         A valuable space to share their story and experience of guiding ministries 

·         Improvement in how they support ministries.

The short course is as follows:

Creating Successful Ministries - Following Jesus' Example

Following Jesus’ example we’ll discover some of the ways in which we can better support our parishes and ministries.
