  • Lay ministry across the Diocese of Sheffield celebrated at Doncaster Minster including our new Children’s Worker Tara Osborne!

    21st September, 2017

    24 adults were admitted or authorised to work as ‘Lay Ministers’ across the Diocese of Sheffield by the Bishop of Doncaster, Peter Burrows on Saturday 16 September in a special service held at Doncaster Minster.

    Lay Ministers offer their time and skills to enable the Church to worship and serve throughout the regions of South Yorkshire and the East Riding.  The service marks an important step on the journey of vocation for the church that will continue with further learning.

    During the service, 23 people were awarded a certificate for completion of the Foundations for Ministry and Mission course.  This is a year-long course that helps people explore their call to ministry in the church.  The Bishop also admitted 14 people to begin their ministry as Readers, authorised 1 Pastoral Worker, 2 Youth Ministers, 7 Children’s Ministers, and 1 Parish Evangelist.

    The Celebration of Lay Ministries Service, which takes place once a year, sees friends, family, clergy and parishes proudly supporting their candidates.

    Canon Dr Christine Gore, Director of Formation and Ministry at the Diocese of Sheffield, commented:

    “This service of celebration is a very significant occasion for those being awarded certificates and being licensed, and it marks an important part in their journey in serving Christ and their local communities.  This is also a moment for them, their families and parishes to feel especially proud of their achievement, as all have completed an stretching course of training to get to this point. For some this will have been the first time they have studied at this level and I’m delighted that we have been able to celebrate their success today in Doncaster Minister.”
