Living Faith Course 2020

Applications for the diocesan discipleship course Living Faith are now being taken.

Living Faith is a part-time course spread over three terms. It is designed to help people find and grow in the discipleship to which God is calling them.

The course is open to anyone who wants to grow and develop in Christian discipleship and ministry.

Cost: £40 for waged (free to unwaged, retired or students). 

Living Faith is also part-one of the Authorised Lay Ministry training programme and candidates who wish to train as ALM’s need first to complete Living Faith. Living Faith will be running at six venues in 2020 – full details at the link below.

Authorised Lay Ministry Course 2019

In the autumn of 2019, the Authorised Lay Ministry training programme will include new ministry electives - providing flexible skills-based training for lay people.

This year we hope to offer training in Children’s ministry, Pastoral ministry, Mission enabler, Family ministry, Community ministry, Worship and Liturgy, preaching and ministry in the workplace.

Applicants for Authorised Lay Ministry will need their incumbent’s support and the nomination of the PCC. They should normally have completed the diocesan Living Faith course or be willing to do so in 2020. However, candidates that can give evidence of having previously undertaken a discipleship course will be able to join the programme this year with the prior agreement of the programme leader, Jayne Prestwood
