Every-Person Ministry is based on the conviction that all Christians share a mission: to be a channel for the Holy Spirit so that the reconciling love of God in Christ may flow throughout the world.

Each of the first four chapters of this absorbing and affirming volume discusses a different kind of ministry:
- neighbourly love
- the importance of listening to people
- the potential we all have to speak and act prophetically
- when and how we should forgive one another and seek reconciliation

Later, the focus moves to attending to our own relationship with God, with guidance on defusing the 'unhelpful passions' which block the action of the Spirit in us; reflections on daily prayer; and an exploration of the way we articulate and explain our faith.

Combining spiritual insight from writers down the centuries with moving (and often humorous) contemporary stories, Every-Person Ministry provides real encouragement to engage in practical ministry, right where we are.

Praise for the author's Seasons of the Spirit: One community's journey through the Christian year:

'Wise and generous; it's accessible and full of insight; it refreshes the soul.' - John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford

'This book was a total delight from start to finish. It was a joy and a privilege to be let into the author's world and to share her life through the year.' - Canon David Adam
