People together

People & Places

People & Places (P&P) is a new framework for church leadership, mission and ministry. The traditional Anglican ministry model is that every parish has a church led by a paid (stipendiary) minister. However, this model is no longer sustainable, fair, or a good fit for our diverse city region.

People & Places allocates church leadership and ministry resources according to population, not historical parish boundaries. The framework also aims to share financial resources more fairly across our Diocese

Under the P&P framework every Christian community will have a leader. The nature of the leadership may be different to your current church leadership though. A church leader won’t necessarily be paid, ordained or full time. They will work with context and oversight ministers as well as lay leaders, however, so in many ways P&P means more ministry and leadership, not less.
