The Ministries Team


MapDay9MinistriesHome Mission supports the work of the Ministries Team based at Didcot

The Ministries Team is led by the Revd Andy Hughes and has seven members of staff.  The team supports all forms of recognised and accredited ministry amongst our churches, as well as providing guidance and advice on ministry-related matters.

They do this through:
  • Offering Pastoral support and advice to ministers and churches as needs arise
  • Supporting the selection, recognition and accreditation processes for ministers, church workers, pastors and preachers
  • Supporting all forms of sector ministry, including chaplaincy to industry, prisons, education, health-care and the military
  • Administering the work of the national Ministerial Recognition Committee
  • Relating to patterns and processes of ministerial training at the Baptist Colleges and elsewhere
  • Assisting in the settlement of ministers and ministerial students through the National Settlement Team
  • Facilitating  conferences to support all stages of ministry
  • Administering some financial support for Bursaries and Further Study awards
  • Helping to prepare ministers for retirement

9MinistriesTeamThe Ministries Team is a resource for all churches who have ministry or who are currently in a pastoral vacancy and as such is a way in which every church receives the benefit of Home Mission.

The work of ministries is presently being reviewed as we together, in our Union, seek to identify what kind of ministry we need for the next generation.

Please pray:

  • For Andy and his team as they support ministers and churches
  • For all those involved in reviewing the work of the Team, praying for a clear sense of God’s vision for the future of ministry in our Union
  • For people testing their calling to ministry through the selection, recognition and accreditation processes
  • For people serving on the national Ministerial Recognition Committee
  • For the National Settlement Team as they work together to link churches and ministers
