The LMMR process is a systematic way for elders and congregations to develop a ‘living document’ about the church’s mission and values
When a church is in vacancy this helps them to
- produce a pastorate profile when a minister moves,
- contribute to a scoping exercise to determine how Ministers are deployed
- engage in a pastoral consultation with the Synod and
- seek financial support from the Synod or other sources.
The process was refreshed in 2017 and key documents are below – we have included templates so the process is open and accessible to all involved.
Each Area in Southern Synod has an Area Review Co-ordinator (ARC) appointed by the Pastoral Committee who is the point of contact for this process.
Your Minister, Interim Moderator or Church Secretary should have details of your ARC
