BISHOP’S COMMISSION FOR MISSION

Might you be interested in developing your skills in either pastoral ministry or leading worship?  A new course, the Bishop’s Commission for Ministry, is being run by the Diocese starting in April – details below.  If you are interested, speak to one of the Ministry Team, and we can let you have an application form, which then is approved by the Incumbent on behalf of the PCC.

BCM Programme Streams – Spring 2017

 Are you a lay person? Would you like some input for your existing ministry, or for a developing vocational path?  More interested in learning from passionate practitioners and others in ministry than in getting a formal qualification?  Then Bishop’s Commission for Mission could be for you.

We are running two programmes in the spring of 2017 as below.  To talk through in more detail what participating this programme might involve, please contact me: phil.dykes@winchester.anglican.org 01962-710973 07884-268968.

For an application form or further details please contact Frances Ter Haar (frances.terhaar@winchester.anglican.org)

BCM for Pastoral Missioners led by Phil Dykes, School of Mission

This is for those with a pastoral heart.  The training will cover a foundational understanding of the missional context we are in, the core skills required for pastoral work in your church/community, as well as input from passionate personal practitioners on specialist areas, in this case growing older, coping with dementia and talking to people about their faith.  You will learn from others who are pastoral in different contexts and also through engaging with a portfolio during the training.

This is for those who have a desire to lead God’s people into God’s presence. The training will cover a foundational understanding of the missional context we are in, the core skills required to lead worship in your church/community, as well as input from passionate personal practitioners on specialist areas, in this case leading intergenerational worship and leading worship not in a church building.  You will learn from others who are leading worship in different contexts and also through engaging with a portfolio during the training.
