    Foundations celebration

    On Pentecost Sunday, 25 people who had completed the Foundations for Ministry course celebrated their achievement at St Nicholas Church, Burnage. They were joined by Bishop David, course leaders, friends and family.

    Everyone had a chance to be involved in the service which included a wide array of cultures, languages and backgrounds. There was even a special blessing from Bishop Bertin of Katanga who was visiting the diocese.

    Foundations for Ministry is an exciting course open to anyone active in church life who feels some sense of vocation or calling to Christian ministry, and needs some time and space to unpack what this might mean or look like. The course runs over three terms, and includes 23 evening sessions and four Saturday course days.
