Published on 23 January 2024 1 minute read
New courses aimed at encouraging people to explore their faith as well as supporting local church office holders in their roles have been added to the Church of Scotland Learning platform.
Since being endorsed by the General Assembly and then launching in August of last year, anyone with a Church of Scotland connection has been invited to use the free resource, with around 700 users benefitting so far.
The latest modules to be added to the site will explore becoming an elder, becoming a session clerk, growing as a leader, exploring your calling and spiritual gifts, and funeral ministry.
Kay Cathcart, People and Training Manager for the Church of Scotland, said: "This is a challenging time for the church, and so we are delighted to provide materials which inspire, and equip, and will build towards a hopeful future.
"I would encourage anyone involved with the Church of Scotland to join hundreds of others by signing-up for free.
"Whether you're a member, minister, deacon, reader or elder we've created resources which have been tailored to support people across the Church in their faith journey."
As well as the new courses, the original study options which range from conversations in discipleship to equality, diversity and inclusion, will remain available to users.
It is hoped that the training will also help people to make a real impact in the communities they serve, as well as to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
