The Diocese of Chichester Diocese is running a course for lay people who are active in church life and who want to grow in discipleship. The course is designed to help people find and grow
in the ministry to which God is calling them which may be Reader ministry, Authorised Lay Ministry, or using other gifts as a volunteer in church. It is an exploratory course, so you’re not committing to anything! Information is available online by searching ‘Chichester Living Faith’. Highly recommended, especially as the church of the future will rely less on ordained ministry (i.e. the clergy) and more on lay minsters.
