Parish Missions

Parish Missions

Parish missions typically engage in health, welfare, housing and other community services and advocacy on behalf of people in need. A congregation or group of related congregations are designated a Parish Mission if it is responsible for ministries of such special character and extent, that, for instance:

  • it looks beyond its own membership for general oversight and management;
  • it makes financial appeals beyond its congregation;
  • Presbytery or Synod appoints extra members to its church council.
