Presbytery News & Photos

The Presbytery of Gippsland endorsed The Fig Tree Project (based on Luke 13) in May 2019. It was born from the struggle of Mission Areas unable to meet ministry expectations and needs. At its simplest, the Fig Tree Project enables congregations to offer ministry in their own context without the need to combine with other congregations under complex structures. Ministry agents are called to the Presbytery into teams with pastoral responsibility for one or more congregations. The team model offers flexibility and a greater range of ministry gifts and skills whilst knowing and nurturing each congregation.
