Lay Preacher Training

Calling all those leading worship in our local churches and wishing to learn and grow as a Lay Preacher.

Posted on Wednesday, February 23, 2022

The next course to train to become an Assembly Accredited Lay Preacher begins in September 2022.

This is a 2 year part-time course leading to Assembly Accreditation. Learning is by mixed mode with some sessions on Zoom, some pre recorded, and work to be done in between; there are also 2 weekends a year. The programme covers personal development, crafting worship, the Bible in worship, theology of the URC, safe boundaries in pastoral care, equality and diversity and intergenerational worship.

For further details please contact your Synod Lay Preaching Commissioner or equivalent or email Nicola Furley-Smith at [email protected] Thames North has no Lay Preaching Commissioner at the moment, so you may contact Colleen Fraser at [email protected] in the meantime.

The URC has produced a booklet to help consider lay preaching and worship leading and it can be found here: https://urc.org.uk/your-church...
