The Ministry Shift

‘The Ministry Shift’ is a new, weekly, 15-minute show featuring Lichfield Diocese ministers reflecting on – and wrestling with – living out their calling in changing times.   

From morale to online ministry; from staying in touch with the community to maintaining a prayer life – we’ll explore how the coronavirus is impacting ministry for ordained and lay alike with a new show each week.   Watch past shows on YouTube, or tune into our diocesan Facebook group for a live broadcast at 4.30pm each Monday, where you can post comments and questions as the show takes place.
