Our exciting, easy-to-access new training is available for all who want to deepen their faith, grow in discipleship and develop the gifts God has given them in the service of the church.
The training is open to all who want to learn more about their faith and also to those who want to develop in ministry.
You don't need any formal qualifications to take any of the modules, just some good thinking and reflecting skills.
You can work towards a Certificate of Mission & Ministry by completing the whole course with assignments or you can simply do the modules for your own faith journey.
You can do one module or many, and you can start, stop for a while and then pick up again later.
The training is modular, which simply means that you will spend 10 sessions looking at a particular subject (for example, the Bible or Pastoral Care or Mission and Evangelism etc).
These 10 sessions make up one module.
You will do 7 of these sessions on your own in the comfort of your own home at a time to suit you and the other 3 sessions will be done with everyone on the module coming together at a church in the Diocese (you will be told where before you start the module).
Modules start running in January 2020 and the cut off date for applications for the first module is 10th January 2020.
