Provincial CMD Autumn 2022 Training Courses for Clerics and Readers/LLMs
As part of our ongoing provincial CMD training programme, I am delighted to say that the Autumn series of courses are now available for booking. All of the courses we’re offering aim to provide practical support and resources for ministers across the Church in Wales.
The full programme is available to Clerics, Readers, and other Lay Licensed Ministers (LLMs). Some are also open to non-ministers such as pastoral care teams and other lay leaders. Where this is the case they will be clearly noted.
These courses are a mix of half-day and full-day events, some online and others in-person, with the in-person courses being held in various locations across Wales to enable wide-spread participation .
The Church in Wales is committed to encouraging a culture of life-long learning among its clergy, Readers and other Licensed Lay Ministers (LLMs), and St Padarn’s works closely with the six dioceses of the Church in Wales to support this.
St Padarn’s takes responsibility for national training initiatives and projects, as well as core training that is common across all dioceses such as pre-retirement courses and the Ministerial Development Review (MDR) scheme. The six dioceses meanwhile each supplement that with additional CMD days for their own Clergy, Readers and LLMs which is much more tailored to reflect their individual contexts, needs and visions.
In addition to encouraging ongoing professional and ministerial development, St Padarn’s also provides practical resources and information to help, support and encourage clerics and LLMs to minister in a wide variety of contexts right across Wales.
