Attendees comment on the course: “Living Faith has been a wonderful opportunity to meet with fellow Christians, share thoughts and make friends. I have felt humbled by the life stories of members of my group and thank them and Jayne for the chance to learn more about myself and what God has in mind for me.” - Maggie

"Thank you SO much for giving me hope – Hope that I may be a part of a growing Anglican Church – advancing His Kingdom" - Angela

Jayne Prestwood the diocesan Officer for Lay Vocation and Ministry said, "I am delighted and encouraged by this growth in the diocese’s engagement with lay vocation which have seen us fulfill the aim of the diocesan current strategy to re-imagine ministry by developing a fuller complement of lay ministries focused on equipping people to serve in both the wider community and the church.

"It is so encouraging to witness the growth in the numbers of people coming forward for authorised and licensed lay ministry training in the Diocese of Chichester, with the diocesan Year of Vocation having had a particular focus on developing the vocation of all God’s people for ministry and for living out everyday faith in the world."

It is FREE to unwaged, retired or student. BOOK NOW!
