Ministries -  this section is very out-of-date: your indulgence is

‘There are varieties of gifts but the same Spirit.  There are varieties of service but the same Lord.  There are varieties of activity, but in all of them and in everyone the same God is active.  In each of us the Spirit is seen to be at work for some useful purpose.’

1 Cor. 12.4-7   ( R.E.B.)

In our parish we have a very active community carrying out the various Ministries that are necessary for a healthy spiritual life. Also, because we are a small community, there is always room for newcomers to get involved (unlike some larger parishes dare we say?).    Each of the ministries has at least one coordinator.
