Getting Ready is a three-session programme designed to help Focal Ministers, PCCs, Oversight Ministers and other leaders in the church to work together to ensure that all the building blocks are in place for the start of Focal Ministry.
The first session looks at teamwork and considers the working relationships between Focal Ministers, PCCs, Church Wardens, other ministers and Oversight Minister(s).
The second session looks at how to stay rooted in prayer and scripture, and to care for ourselves and others.
The final session explores what new opportunities for ministry and mission the new arrangements might open up.
As part of Getting Ready the Focal Minister(s) and their Oversight Minister will complete a Ministry Agreement to help everyone to be clear about roles and expectations. This includes what sort of ministry and how much time Focal Ministers are offering, as well as how legitimate expenses might be claimed.
