we strive to perform our duties within the stipulations of
Canons and Constitution of the Anglican Church of Southern

feel they have been called into the work of the Lord

We provide assistance to the clergy during the Eucharist.
We undertake classes to prepare candidates for
Baptisms, Confirmations and Penitence.
We also visit bereaved families to offer prayers and
condolences and conducting funeral services for our members and
their relatives equally.
As Lay Ministers, we are valued members of the body of Christ
in general, our Parish and our Diocese.
During the year we hold various meetings such as Bible
studies, Workshops, and once a year a Retreat to help us grow
spiritually and in the work of the Lord.
