Lay Training

Across the Diocese of Leeds there are plenty of exciting opportunities to grow in faith as well as to develop skills to serve God and his people. These range from one-off events to more sustained courses.

In addition to courses offered at parish-level, a variety of training opportunities are organised in Episcopal Areas and diocesan-wide. The Diocesan School of Ministry provides training for ‘licensed’ or ‘authorised’ ministries, such as Reader Ministry, through training hubs around the diocese.  

Members of the Diocesan Lay Training Team will be pleased to provide further details, even if your enquiry is tentative. Their contact details are below.
