5 Essentials for Church Leaders

We think Church leaders are amazing! Your passion and commitment to leading the people of God is inspiring. You’re multi-taskers with big hearts who have a million and one thing to think about at all times: sermons, assemblies, church meetings, funerals, weddings, baptisms, bring and share lunches, prayer requests. I could go on! You really are fantastic! 

Here’s 5 top tips for helping you to ease the load:

  1. 1. A great support network - Whether it’s a superstar Parish Administrator, a mentor who’s seen you through thick and thin, your spouse or even your dog, you need a team (four-legged or otherwise) behind you. To lift you up when you’re feeling low and cheer for you when you’re on a high!

  2. 2. Decent coffee - I should admit here, that I’m actually a tea drinker. But having spoken to a lot of Church leaders it seems coffee is the beverage of choice! But whatever your drink choice, make it a good one! Put the kettle on and enjoy that warm hug in a mug!

  3. 3. A quiet spot - It’s so easy to be on the go. To rush from one appointment to the next, working through the to-do list. But it’s so important to stop. To have some time for yourself to reflect, recuperate and spend time with God. Pick a spot: a chair, beanbag, park bench, for a daily moment (or ten) of tranquility.  

    Looking for something to guide your quiet time? Reflections for Daily Prayer offers insight and wisdom for each day from leading UK Christians including Kate Bruce, Steve Croft and Paula Gooder.

  4. 4. A Bible - Whether you favour the traditional words of the KJV or the poetic prose of the Passion Translation, a well-read Bible will provide the lifeline of your life and ministry.

  5. 5. Dated resources - A go-to for inspiration, reflection and guidance for even the busiest of leaders. From Common Worship Lectionaries which include readings and Bible passages for the coming year to Preaching Annuals with topics for every sermon and Diaries with plenty of space for everything you need to remember.
