Purpose and Mandate
The Ministry Development Team (MDT) has four main roles:
- To consider what All Saints’ should be and do
- To consider what contribution every member can make
- To consider what support and training are needed
- To consider how well the church is doing in the fulfilment of its vision
The MDT therefore sets the spiritual direction of the church.
It identifies, and seeks to release, spiritual gifts and ministries identifying training needs and opportunities.
It examines, critiques and prays through new ideas and either says “no” or recommends that the PCC says “yes”.
It measures the effectiveness of existing ministries, making recommendations as necessary.
The MDT is a leadership mechanism, not a body that undertakes practical tasks. Licensed by the Bishop, it is accountable to the PCC.
