Discipleship and Ministry are focus of bishop’s Lenten courses

Tuesday December 10th 2013

The focus of the Bishop of Connor’s Lenten courses for 2014 will be Discipleship and Ministry.

Two seminars will be delivered during March and the first week in April in three venues – Bushmills Parish Centre, Jordanstown Parish Centre, and Christ Church, Lisburn.

Announcing the course details, the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy said: “As a Church, we have often talked about everyone having a ministry and, indeed, it is present in our baptismal liturgy.

“However, it is something that is difficult to implement and it is becoming more difficult to get volunteers in an increasingly busy and demanding lifestyle for many.

“In the Lent course, I will be focusing on what it means to be a disciple in our present culture and how we might continue to grow in faith as individuals and as communities.

“I will also be reflecting on how discipleship leads us to ministry and how every disciple has a ministry within the body of Christ, what this might mean and how we can seek to develop the ministry of all.”
