Growing faith and developing ministry
Sign up now for January 2021
Three options available
Sign up for the First year of the Diocesan Certificate in Mission and Ministry course
to help with growth in faith and the development of ministry. This is now all online and can be completed from the comfort of your own home.
The course is modular and each module consists of seven sessions which you complete on your own and three which you complete with other students on Study Days via Zoom.
Think you may have a calling to be a Reader?
The first year of the new Reader Training course starts in January and is now a discernment year which you can take while working with a Vocations Adviser and the supervision of your incumbent.
This gives you the opportunity to explore whether Reader ministry is for you. You will need the support of your incumbent (or the equivalent in a Vacancy) in order to sign up for this course.
Just keen to deepen your faith and increase your knowledge?
Take single modules as and when they are running. The modules running next term (16 January to 20 March 2021) are:
- Introductory Level Module: Called to be the People of God
- Advanced Level Module: Mission and Evangelism
Modules each cost a flat fee of £25, payable prior to commencement of each one (you only pay for the modules you study).
Closing date for applications for next term’s modules, the Certificate in Mission and Ministry and the Reader Training Course is Friday, 8 January 2021

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).
