Community and Ministry. An introduction to Community in a Christian Context

Paul Ballard and Lesley Husselbee
Community and Ministry

All clergy, ministers, church-related community workers and lay leaders need to understand how they and their churches may relate to the community in which they are set, and this is an essential part of their training.

This book provides a thorough and professional introduction to the subject, and includes: what is community?; community work and mission; models of community work; ethnic, cultural and religious diversity; the local authority and voluntary agencies; working with volunteers; and spirituality in community participation.
