Lay Learning course
This multimedia course, Walking Together in Faith, is open to all lay members of the Church – whether they are simply looking to learn more about the Christian faith or exploring the possibility of formal lay ministry.
It is divided into four modules, each comprising five units. The modules run consecutively over a 12-month period.
It has been designed to be flexible and is accessible via the online platform Moodle. Participants are encouraged to join a local group to study, but for those who can’t, there are online options.
Participants can also choose their level of engagement: they can use the course as a free study guide but, for a small fee, can also register, submit work for assessment and be awarded a Bishop’s Certificate in recognition of their achievements.
The course was launched in the autumn of 2022 under the leadership of the Diocesan Director of Lay Discipleship, Dr Clare Amos. It is very much a grass roots rather than top-down project. It was created in response to demand within our chaplaincies and is the ideal follow up to an Alpha Course, confirmation classes or the Church of England’s Pilgrim Course.
