We are encouraging our communities to pick a Sunday in August to encourage, acknowledge and give thanks for those who lead services on a Sunday morning who aren’t ministers. We have gathered some resources provided by the Christchurch Lay Preachers Association that you may find helps in crafting a special service.
The Canterbury Lay Preacher’s Association
The CPLA offer a mentoring service for people who would like to try lay preaching. We produce a quarterly newsletter of preaching and devotional resources. We also have an annual training day. This year it is on Saturday 25 September 9.30am – 3.30pm and the theme is “Making the Gospel Relevant”. Contact details for key CPA members can be found below.
