Priesthood of all believers resource

At our southern Regional Education and Formation day on Saturday 21 June we made reference to this document (downloadable as a pdf from the site) which very helpfully describes the concept of the “priesthood of all believers”, especially in regard to our emphasis on baptismal ministry in Local Shared Ministry.

It could be a useful resource to preachers and educators.

Draft Training Outline

In 2014 the LSMUs in Northland will  be gathering together in 2 locations for regional monthly training days.

One group will meet most often in Kerikeri, and the other mostly in Onerahi (Whangarei), but when a training session is missed there will be the opportunity to attend the same training in the other location. Please note that the linked programme below is a DRAFT ONLY. We are still negotiating to be able to offer the Trinity College certificate.

Regional LSMU 3-year Training Outline ProposalDates

Ian Render and Sarah Stevens will be running the training days, supported by Bishop Jim whenever he is available.

Normally the northern group will meet on the first Friday, and the southern on the third Saturday, but in February the dates will be 14 February (North) and 15 February (South). The linked document (latest version) above has the dates for each of the months next year, apart from January 2015.
