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