    Abstract

    This thesis, based on surveys of diaconal ministry in the Uniting Church, contends that the ministry of deacon lies at the heart of ecclesial identity. Diaconal ministry, which is a ‘ministry on the margins’, is more than humble servanthood and is instead representative of the diakonia of the whole church.
