Ministry refers to the way we build one another up as one body in Christ.

Within worship lay people read scripture, serve, carry the gospel candles, act as stewards and welcomers, ring bells, arrange flowers, and sing in one of our voluntary choirs.

Beyond worship people prepare and serve food at social events, visit the sick and housebound in a ministry of pastoral care, plan and run educational events, maintain overseas links, raise awareness around disability and sustainability, help to lead the Friends of St Martin’s, and maintain links with ecumenical and overseas partners.
