Introduction to Christian Ministry course, starts September 2022
Thursday September 1
The Diocese of Gloucester, in partnership with Cuddesdon, is offering a new, one year Introduction to Christian Ministry course starting this September 2022
Are you looking for a way to deepen your knowledge of the Bible and Christian ministry?
We are re-launching the Foundations program as a more comprehensive one-year course which will serve a variety of local parish ministry needs. Designed for lay leaders wanting a more solid footing for Christian ministry today, it is suited for:
- Messy Church or Open the Book leaders or helpers
- worship leaders
- members of local pastoral care teams
- young people taking a year out to see where God is leading them
- keen Christians wanting to help others come to faith in Christ
- faithful Christians, experiencing a vocational call but needing to test this further

More about CGH:
Cuddesdon Gloucester and Hereford (CGH) is a member of the Ripon College Cuddesdon family of ministry training pathways, training women and men, locally, for ordination as priests and deacons, as well as Licensed Lay Ministers (Readers).
Over the past few years CGH has been extending its training for parish leaders and youth interns in both dioceses and all have hugely benefitted from learning alongside one another. CGH brings a wide variety of people together into a single learning community. People come from all walks of life, representing a broad spectrum of age, education, spiritual tradition and ministry experience, enabling rich conversations about our common Christian faith.
Anyone who is discerned by their vicar and PCC to enhance their local lay ministry will have their course fees paid for by the Diocese.
If you are not involved in ministry in your church, but are wanting to simply know more about the Bible and our Christian heritage, you are welcome to apply to CGH to enrol in a module or two, at your own expense. NB this is at the discretion of CGH and is subject to their enrolment process.
