Journey in Faith

 

 

What is Journey in Faith?

Journey in Faith is a three 10-week term Christian discipleship course which runs from September to July. It's taught using a set of course manuals, in small, local groups.

 

Who can join?

JiF is open to all – although some understanding of the basics of Christian faith would be beneficial to your overall study.

 

What does it cost?

In the academic year 2012-13 we are charging £120 for the whole course, and it may be that your local church or denomination will be able to help with this expense.

 

Where does it happen?

Depending on student numbers and availability of tutors, we organise local tutorial groups throughout the region. There will be some teaching days (one or two per term) organised in each county.

 

What happens next?

If God is calling you to some form of recognised, licensed or ordained ministry then Journey of Faith will be a starting point for the appropriate training course. This will be explained as we go along.

 

How do I join?

Complete the booking form (see attachment below) and return it to the relevant address.

 

The course is delivered locally in thirty week-night sessions of two hours.

 

Running through all 3 terms will be opportunities to spend time discerning our gifts, hearing God's call and making our response to God.

 

Folders of study material and resources will be provided.

Written work is not obligatory, but there will be the option of completing one project per term.

 

If you have any queries please contact:

Thank you for taking the time to consider applying for training for Licensed or Authorised Lay Ministry. Thereare two sets of documents to help you in this process, an information pack and an application pack which you will find below.

 

You will notice that we consider conversations with other people a useful and necessary part of the process.
These conversations give you time and space to reflect more deeply on your sense of vocation, your gifts
and skills and how these fit in to the life of the church. We therefore ask that as well as talking with your
incumbent and close personal friends, you have a conversation with a Diocesan Vocations Adviser. In order
to arrange this please contact the Vocations Team Leader The Revd Canon Geraldine Pond, 01335 343129, DDO@derby.Anglican.org

As well as providing space for you to talk with others we have provided a framework on which to base your
reflections and conversations in the form of some criteria for each form of ministry. These criteria are there
to help us all discern your fit for a particular ministry therefore, please make sure you provide what evidence
you can that you meet the criteria in your completed application pack.


The closing date for completed applications is 31st May 2012 and they should be sent to the Lay Ministry
Officer. Please note that if you are selected to train for Licensed or Authorised Lay Ministry we will need evidence of a satisfactory enhanced CRB check.


Please don’t hesitate to contact the Lay Ministry Officer if you have any further questions.

Authorised Lay Ministry

 

Many dioceses in the Church of England authorise people as lay ministers as a way of supporting and enabling people to exercise a specialised ministry in a voluntary capacity. This authorisation applies to a particular Diocese and cannot be transferred to another one.

 

In the Diocese of Derby we authorise people to exercise a focussed and specialised ministry in a particular parish or MMA in order to assist the local leadership. 

 

For 2011/2012 there will be three strands of initial training for Authorised Lay Ministry available in Derby Diocese:

 

1.      Working with children, young people and families

 

2.      Parish based mission and evangelism

 

3.      Pastoral care

 

All of this training will be delivered in ten sessions spread out across a year alongside some practical experience. 

  

For more information, please contact:

 

The Lay Ministry Officer: Dr Esther Elliott

01332 388674, or esther.elliott@derby.anglican.org

 

Or, her secretary, Mrs Fiona Bennett

01332 388670, or fiona.bennett@derby.anglican.org

On becoming an ALM, a dated certificate of authorisation is issued. This should be renewed every 3 years, and this usually expires in Advent time.

 

In order to renew their authorisation they must continue to have the support of their incumbent and PCC, and a valid CRB disclosure.

 

In order to renew your ALM certificate, please complete and return the following documents to us which can be found below:

 

  • ALM Authorisation Renewal Form
  • Working Agreement (ALMs should renew their Working Agreements annually)
  • Paper Certificate

 

The ALM must also have a valid CRB disclosure. Forms can be obtained from the Archdeacon of Derby’s Secretary, Pam Richmond:

 

01332 388676, or pam.richmond@derby.anglican.org

 

Once we have received these documents and all are satisfactory, we will request your certificate renewal from the Bishop of Derby.

 

For more information or paper copies of the forms please contact:
