Local leadership is offered in many different forms including Ministers of Word and Sacrament, CRCWs, Elderships, Worship Groups and others. We gratefully acknowledge and give thanks for all the leadership skills and gifts that are offered in our local churches by many people.
In some situations the mission and witness of the local church will be best enabled by the appointment of a Local Leader. The paper below presents guidelines for the role of Local Leader as a response to the “Challenge to the Church” of General Assembly 2008 and our subsequent Synod Local Leaders Consultation in 2009.
If as a local church you wish to pursue this further, please contact either our Moderator Revd Paul Whittle or the Misssion and Training Officer Revd Peter Ball.
