Lay Ministry

A page about authorised lay ministers, with contact details and links to more information.

Licensed Lay Ministers (LLMs)

Lay Ministers are licensed to work alongside ordained colleagues in the parishes where they serve. In some cases their ministry is rooted in the community or in the workplace rather than in the life of the local church. More here

Lay Pastoral Assistants (LPAs)

Lay Pastoral Assistants assist with the pastoral ministry of the parishes where they live. They are chosen by their incumbent and PCC, and minister under the direction of their incumbent. More here 

LPA training information and resources click here

Lay Worship Leaders (LWLs)

Lay Worship Leaders assist with planning and leading worship in the parishes where they live. Like LPAs, they are chosen by their incumbent and PCC and minister under the direction of their incumbent.  More here

Updated Listing Commissioned Lay Pioneers (CLPs)

Alongside Lay Pastoral Assistants and Lay Worship Leaders, we are launching a new ministry - Commissioned Lay Pioneers - beginning with a pilot in St Peter’s Dorchester, and Christchurch Warminster in September. A Commissioned Lay Pioneer has a sense of calling to mission outside the church, working with others to gather people into new expression of Christian community.  If you know anyone who would be suitable, please .
