In co-operation with the incumbent, churchwardens, as part of the ministry team, are generally responsible for the day-to-day functioning of the parish and/or ministry area.
It is important that churchwardens nourish and maintain their own Christian faith, and not let it fade with the administrative and practical issues which may arise in the church.
Churchwardens are not expected to do everything themselves, but to make sure that there are other people available to carry out the various tasks.
