Thursday 10 January - Lay Pastoral Assistant Training. In the Spring term we are running a Deanery- wide LPA (Lay Pastoral Assistant) training course. Once trained LPAs are commissioned by the Bishop in order to engage in a range of areas of pastoral ministry. The training is excellent and a team of LPA’s will enable us to more fully express God’s love and care in our churches and communities. There is a non-committal taster session for all who are interested on Thurs 10th Jan 2019, 7.30pm at St Aldhelm’s. The training will then take place on the following Saturdays; 26th Jan, 9th Feb, 16th Feb and 2nd March. For more info please speak to Tom, Jo or Nick or come along on 10th Jan. Do also begin to pray about whether this is something God is calling you to. Rev Tom Coopey. Vicar of St John’s Church Weymouth.
