Education for Ministry is an adult learning programme designed to link Christian faith with daily life, and to deepen Christian discipleship.  It is one of our key discipleship tools used across our movement.

EFM combines scholarly and systematic Bible study and education in theology and church history, with small group worship, prayer and fellowship. What we learn through our study is joined to our own lives and experiences through the exciting, challenging, and faith-building process of theological reflection.

Mentor training: We have a number of EfM groups operating around the diocese and could have more if we had enough mentors willing to facilitate. Are you interested in learning more? There will be three mentor training sessions in the diocese during 2019.

The first occurred in Wellington in January, with the next occurring on the 31st of May and 1st of June in Feilding, and a subsequent session in November.  To publicise this event in your parish, print this flyer to include in your church newsletters and share this event on your Facebook page.
