On The Way
‘So we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another’ 1 Corinthians 12.5.
On the Way
We, in Kerrier Deanery, recognise this Deanery Plan, not as the conclusion to our being ‘On the Way’ but as a staging post on our journey to a more fruitful and sustainable future.
We recognise the urgent need for change, and that this plan asks us for answers we can only hesitantly give. Nonetheless, we are confident that this plan is a faithful response to God’s call to the churches of this deanery, and we offer it as the best map that we can manage for the next stage of our journey.
We wish to work as one ‘Body’ across the Deanery and we want our connectedness to grow. We realise our need to find new ways in which our dispersed communities can pray, learn, worship and support each other. To this end we have agreed a new staffing structure, the Kerrier Team Ministry, and desire that those who take up roles within this structure will lead us in care and mission, and to do so as part of the body of Christ in Kerrier.
