'Our ministries are the means by which we seek to encourage Renewal in the Church, they include: conferences and other events for the inspiration and teaching of clergy, leaders and laity, the production of publications, liaison with prayer networks, and close co-operation with diocesan, provincial and international renewal organisations.
