Team Away Day

The Watling Valley Ministry Team had a half day away as a team today at the Well to talk about our purpose. It was a good discussion and we produced four draft purposes:
  1. To provide spiritual leadership - which is all about theological reflection, guidance and accompaniment rather than control - recognising that leadership is shared by the whole community.
  2. To nurture discipleship - which includes members of the team itself - since we all need to grow as people of God.
  3. To maintain the authenticity of worship - which is a key role for ordained and incumbent clergy who have responsibility for the conduct of worship on behalf of their denominations.
  4. To provide mutual support for one another.
We also began to talk about values and how an understanding of our purpose may affect the way we meet.
