Lifelong learning for all baptised parishioners called to work alongside authorised ministers at every level of discipleship, mission and service.

 Mary MarshallCourse on the Resurrection

Saturday 26 April 2014 9.30-4.30pm
at Sarum College 
This one day study course, led by Dr. Mary Marshall from Oxford University and formerly a regular New Testament tutor for us, will be a not-to-be missed treat for those who love detailed New Testament textual study. Hot on the heels of Easter, it will explore the theme of resurrection, drawing on the Synoptic Gospels, John’s farewell discourses and Paul’s fascinating chapter on resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15.  Bring a Bible and discover new things in these marvellous texts.

Local Learning

Many deaneries now have “bite-size learning” opportunities – an evening or a very short course on a topic of general interest. This can range from art and theology to understanding the Eucharist. Click here or contact your deanery lay learning rep or your clergy for more information.

Lay Pastoral Assistant Training is also available in many deaneries.

Learning for Discipleship consists of five- or ten-week courses on a variety of topics and may be available near you. Click here for further information.

The Church and Community Mission Audit is an online course which can be taken by a parish or benefice (the PCC or group tasked by the PCC) as part of its mission planning.


Diocesan Learning

The Learning for Discipleship Programme is the main plank of our diocesan learning. Courses may be taken for the following purposes:

  • As an individual 5 or 10 week course at a local level for interest. Most of our learners use it in this way
  • To study as part of discerning whether you are called to lay or ordained ministry
  • As the way of formation and training for Licensed Lay Ministry 

There are many other opportunities for learning provided by various Christian bodies. It is sometimes possible to use such learning and receive academic credit as part of the Foundation degree.
