Ministry Skills

The Diocese has recognised that a lot of energy has gone into training for those in formal licensed ministries, but that this is just a small number of people who are actually providing ministry in the life of the church. So there are now a number of short courses available to help provide confidence for the wider congregation and the ministries that they are carrying out on a regular basis. These include:

  • Leading intercessions
  • Visiting the sick
  • Listening skills
  • Reading in church
  • Practising prayer
  • Making the most of listening to sermons
  • Being a welcoming church
  • Working disciples
  • Sharing our faith
  • Effective church meetings
  • Chairing church meetings

We have run some of these courses as deanery. If you are interested in exploring any of these, please contact us. For more information, please click here.
