Offering Pastoral Care & Community Skills

This is a key area of leadership in the church, with many of those in commissioned teams having a front line role in the mission activity of their church.

Target group: The 3D course is a recommended first step – and is required for those who are seeking to be part of an accredited team. There must be support from the incumbent, PCC and Parish.

Length of course: There are four. The training for Offering Pastoral Care & Community Skills is delivered at local centres for a parish team, beginning in September and finishing 20 months later.

Cost: There is no charge to participants for any of their training.

Intended outcomes: To equip a pastoral team to share with clergy in pastoral care and community outreach in their parish. Those wishing to take modules in working with children or young people will join either the diocesan Bishop’s Certificate course for Children’s Ministry or will undertake training organised by the Bishop’s Adviser for Youth Ministry.
