contemporary ministry images in Rev

I’m teaching church, ministry, sacraments and enjoying watching the BBC programme the Rev for clips worth showing to the class.

The first half of episode 3 is fascinating, as within 12 minutes it explores the wide range of ministry and mission models possible

  • ministry as carer – in this clip, with the great line “Soft touch for cash”
  • also ministry as inter-faith dialogue – in the welcoming of Muslims to use the church
  • ministry as Religious educator in schools
  • ministry as prophet – in the challenging of the start of a local strip club next door to the local school
  • ministry as funeral director – in the opening scene in which, being an inner-city parish, the hearse is towed away during the funeral
