The individual congregations are the centre of church life. They are led by ministers (congregational leaders) who are ordained to a priestly office. In addition to conducting church services, it is the task of the priestly ministers to perform acts of blessing (baptisms, marriages, etc.) and to provide pastoral care to the members of the congregation. Deacon and deaconess fulfil a variety of services in the parish and support the priests in their pastoral care.
