If you don’t see what you need, please get in touch with the Focal Ministry Team and we will do our best to provide it. We also very much welcome offers from our amazing Focal Ministers (and others) who feel able to share their gifts and talents with others. Again, please do be in touch if you have experience and knowledge to share.
We are committed to the ongoing equipping and flourishing of our Focal Ministers.
