What is a Lay Rep?

Lay Reps help keep the 3 arms of our ministry strategy on the agenda of the church, they bring a lay perspective, wisdom in planning and help serve the congregation and clergy in implementing the strategy.

For a fuller description of our strategy and their role in it, please see the document 'Growing Disciples: St John's Ministry Strategy (April 2003) at the back of church.

Reps are available if you have ideas, or would like to ask them something relating to their area.
