When we hear: Go now to love and serve the Lord, and we reply: Amen. We go in the name of Christ, we are committing, as individuals and as communities, to join with Jesus in washing one another’s feet (John 13:4), to minister to one another. What might this look like in our specific contexts, and how are we resourced to do this? How are we called to minister in our daily lives, and in our whanau together? And how do we grow in our awareness of what it means to be partners with Christ in attending to, serving, supporting, and sustaining each other?
Education for Ministry is one of the tools that our Diocese affirms as a profound way to deepen and resource our discipleship together. Exploring faith matters, learning to think theologically and discovering our Christian vocation is at the heart of EFM.
By examining our own beliefs and practices, and their relationship to culture and the tradition of our Christian faith, EFM helps us to shape our ministry and effectiveness in journeying alongside the last, the lost and the least.
Come and join us at our afternoon workshop, and experience a taste of EFM.
