Congregational Support

Home / Resources / Congregational Support

The District supports the mission and ministry of its congregations in a number of ways, and provides services directly where these are beyond the ability of single congregations.

Pastor Brett Kennett, District Pastor for Congregations, acts as a consultant to congregations, encourages and challenges them in their mission and ministry, and assists the District Bishop in his oversight of congregations. Management of these and other services is given to the Council for Ministry Support and its committees.

Pastor Brett also assists congregations in clarifying their mission and in remaining healthy and hospitable. Three key questions for congregations in clarifying their mission are:

  • Who are we? (Identity)
  • What are we here for? (Purpose)
  • Who is our neighbour? (Context)

Pastor Brett is available to meet with pastors and congregations to reflect on their mission and ministry, and to clarify ways to implement their mission in their context into the future.

Please phone District Office to contact Pastor Brett (03) 9236 1200
