Continuing Ministerial Development (Lay and Ordained)
last updated on: 4th Sep 2015
Wherever possible Continuing Ministerial Development is organised collaboratively, integrating the education and training of both lay and ordained who minister within the Church. As such wherever possible courses are offered as free to all, and open to all unless specifically stated otherwise.
We encourage all of us who minister in the Church to be more specific in our ministerial development intention, and to work out our own ministry development plan for how we can continue to reflect, learn, and flourish in our place of ministry. We recognise that not all of our learning comes from courses, but that provisions such as these can be a key moment in our ministry development. Our clergy ministerial reviews, or review of our ministry working agreements, feed into this.
