Lay Ministry

A page about authorised lay ministers, with contact details and links to more information.

Licensed Lay Ministers (LLMs)

Lay Ministers are licensed to work alongside ordained colleagues in the parishes where they serve. In some cases their ministry is rooted in the community or in the workplace rather than in the life of the local church. More here


Lay Pastoral Assistants (LPAs)

Lay Pastoral Assistants assist with the pastoral ministry of the parishes where they live. They are chosen by their incumbent and PCC, and minister under the direction of their incumbent. More here 

Lay Worship Leaders (LWLs)

Lay Worship Leaders assist with planning and leading worship in the parishes where they live. Like LPAs, they are chosen by their incumbent and PCC and minister under the direction of their incumbent.  More here


Commissioned Lay Pioneers (CLPs)

Alongside Lay Pastoral Assistants and Lay Worship Leaders, we are really excited to announce a new course for the formation and training of lay pioneers. Salisbury Diocese is partnering with the Diocese of Bath & Wells and Church Mission Society to run the CMS certificate.

The CMS certificate is a course in pioneer ministry involving 6 modules over 6 weekends and will run from February - November 2022.

For further details on the course, you can download the course brochure here or contact Sally Taylor 

 There are also 2 taster events planned for the 2nd and 7th November 2021, details of which can be found here.
