Foundations in Christian Ministry

Foundations in Christian Ministry is a 1-year lay training course delivered by SWMTC for the diocese and now in its second run.

Do you feel you would like to serve the Church more, but are not sure of the direction?

Are you interested in preaching, or pastoral care, or evangelism, and feel the need for more training?

Would you like to work with others in a group, praying and learning together for a year while listening for God speaking about your vocation?

If you would like more information on the course, please see the following document or email Revd David Carrington, Director of Lay Education at SWMT.
