The follow up to Bishop John's bestselling The Life and Work of a Priest in an easy to navigate format

This handbook aims to help any Christian committed to their role as a follower and fellow-worker with Christ to be more effective in their ministry. It offers practical suggestions for faithful practice in numerous areas, ranging from Apologetics to Worship and beyond. The suggestions aren’t ‘hints and tips’ as such; rather we are encouraged to reflect on what underlies our actions.

John Pritchard has been a parish priest, diocesan youth officer, theological college principal, archdeacon and bishop. He’s also been warden of readers, trained lay ministers of all kinds, taught large numbers of lay people, written widely, led retreats etc, and thus has a handle on many aspects of ministry. The book contains illustrations from the Bible, experience, stories, quotes, and possibly poetry and prayer.
