Christ has many duties for us to do. Every October the MCCA makes special emphasis that all members of the Church are called to be in the ministry of the Church. During this month attention is also given to those who have been responded to the call to the ordained ministry of the church and encouragement is given to those who believe that they are being called to the ordained ministry. Spend some time this month to discern the call of God on your life!

Our Church Nurturing
Education is a lifelong process, beginning at birth and ending with the grave. The ministry of the Church School is to guide the Christian education of persons by using the Bible as the basis of instruction to enable the transformation of lives through education.
The umbrella organisation for all youth groups, youth fellowships, youth choirs, and other youth organisations, at the Connexional level will be MCCA Youth and will mean that the voice of the youth from the Caribbean and the Americas will also have a place in the administration of the church and in the international Methodist and Christian youth forum.
Our Church Serving
All members of the Church are called upon to serve Christ in the world. At baptism the individual becomes a member of the Body of Christ and so is called upon to serve and be involved in ministry.
