54 more Lay Ministers!

Lay Ministry Celebrations have seen 54 more people welcomed as Licensed Lay Ministers, Pastoral Assistants, Evangelism Enablers, Newham Evangelists, Youth Ministers, Spiritual Companions, and Lay Pioneers.

800 people were present at Chelmsford Cathedral in October 2018 to celebrate the many different ways God’s people have responded to his call to share in his mission to the world and join together as missionary disciples.
