Praying for Growth – Equipping Ministers for Mission

We are underpinning our three key priorities by investing in our clergy and lay leaders, providing training and development opportunities to enable them to grow and feel supported and equipped for mission.

One of the way the team offer a range of courses for parishes is through the Foundation Courses in Local Leadership (FCiLL). This is a way of both organising the training material already offered by the diocesan teams and others, and also identifying new material we need to support local leadership in our parishes.

The FCiLL range of courses aim to support and equip people to lead in parish life and mission where they are. There are 4 strands:
• Ministry and Leadership
• Buildings and Churchyards
• Governance and Compliance
• Finance and Administration

All of the training sessions feature practical support, creative ideas, and stimulating discussion on many aspects of church life and the Christian faith. You can sign up to as many any you’d like, and the majority are open to anyone in the Diocese.

Pray for all our ordained and lay leaders and for all who offer training to help them continue to grow and develop in their different roles. For the diocesan Mission and Ministry team who lead on this work.
