Foundations in Christian Ministry

Places are still available for the Foundations in Christian Ministry course scheduled to start in September, run by SWMTC on behalf of the Diocese.

Due to the impact of COVID restrictions, the course application deadline has been extended to 30th June, though earlier receipt of applications would be appreciated. 

Those interested should contact Belinda Speed-Andrews or David Carrington. If you need their contact details, please leave a short message, using the CONTACT US button on the main menu above and we will respond the same day.

A reminder that the FiCM provides one-year part-time entry-level teaching on the Bible, Spirituality, Theology and Pastoral Care.

The course’s aims are –

  • to deepen the student’s Christian discipleship
  • to help them explore and form their gifts for ministry
  • to help them discern God’s call for the next step in their ministry
  • and to provide them with a foundation for further training in lay ministry

It also forms the foundation year for Reader training.
