At the beginning of December last year the Bromsgrove parishes of St John’s with St Andrews, All Saints, St Godwalds and Christ Church with St Luke’s became a single Parish and with Dodford as a separate Parish in the Benefice, all churches are part of the Bromsgrove Team.
Working as a team has many advantages. On a team there’s access to a wider variety of skills, qualities, attributes and expertise and people can focus on what they do best. On a team people bounce ideas off each other and can often turn a good insight or idea into a great project. People can work on different elements of a project which achieves the desired result more effectively. A team can offer support and encouragement that helps individual members through the good times and the difficult times and the shared responsibility can encourage risk taking. Together Everyone Achieves More. And good team working is as important in families and communities as in places of work and in church.Read more: Pastoral Letter May 2013
