Lay Training

The diocese is available to provide a range of training, information and support for parishes

Foundations for Ministry is a lay training course to help you grow and develop in Christian Ministry.

Eucharistic Assistants assist the minister in the distribution of bread and wine at communion.

Authorised Lay Ministers (ALMs) share in the public ministry of the local church, as they serve their local parishes.

We run regular training courses to help with different aspects of ministry such as administering Gift Aid, applying for grants and training volunteers for work with children and young people.
