Foundations in Ministry

An accompanied learning community for ministry discernment and formation.

The Foundations in Ministry course (formerly called the Deepening Discipleship project) is for anyone exploring their call to ministry or simply wanting to get more involved in their local churches.

This learning community is the first step for those who are interested in developing their ministry and would like to explore their calling to either:

Licensed Lay Minister (Reader)

Authorised Lay Minister

The course runs for 10 months and includes a mix of local gathered days and online reflection sessions.

The application form and further details about the course and the application process can be found in the resources below. The main contact regarding applications is Aimee Byrd – she will be very happy to answer any questions you may have.
