Lay Ministry

Lay Ministry covers a huge amount of hard work that is carried out by lay (not ordained) members of the church. It is recognised at those tasks which people are formally commissioned to carry out within the life of the church and beyond.

  • Readers
  • Evangelists
  • Teachers of the faith
  • Chaplains
  • Pioneer ministers
  • Youth and children’s workers
  • Worship leaders
  • Lay Worship Assistants
  • Community workers
  • Lay Pastoral Assistants
  • Home group leaders
  • Prayer ministers
  • Churchwardens
