All Saints has the benefits of being both a large church and a parish church, giving a breadth of opportunities for ministry training. Whether you're exploring ordination, youth & children's ministry or music ministry there's lots to be involved with.

Responsibilities

Training The focus of this scheme is training for ministry, which is delivered in a variety of ways, including both formal study and practical service. Sussex Ministry Training Course The SMTC meets each Tuesday in Cuckfield, near Haywards Heath and runs for three eleven-week terms (starting in September). It offers training in Bible-handling skills, giving Christian talks, doctrine and practical ministry topics. Serving One of the best ways to learn is through 'doing'. There will be lots of opportunities to serve in varied aspects of church life, to experience and practise ministry skills. This might include: - Helping in groups for youth and children (e.g. a daytime creche) - Supporting administrative activities in the church - Setting up rooms for events (e.g. stacking chairs) - Technical Support (e.g. running sound and vision for events) Ministry and Mentoring Alongside the formal study on the training course, you'll be able to immerse yourself in the life of All Saints and get involved in different areas of ministry. Whether you would like experience of music ministry, youth and children's work, pastoral care, or work among seniors, we have experienced leaders among our team who will be able to guide you and give you opportunities to serve. If there is a particular area of ministry that you'd like to focus on, then we will link you up to be mentored by that ministry leader. If you are exploring whether God might be calling you to church leadership, one of our three full-time clergy would be delighted to help you in the discernment process.
