Transforming Ministry: Learning


What is CMD?

Learning and development doesn’t stop at licensing – we are all challenged to continue to learn and grow in faith. The ongoing learning provision (sometimes called Continuous Ministerial Development (CMD) ) varies between dioceses. CRC offers a number of courses to its members (Readers (LLMs) or subscription members). Some of these have been commissioned by CRC and others are being shared by their authors or originating dioceses in this hub.

Our training modules

Online Worship and teaching

In March 2020 the Church changed and it will never be the same again.

Overnight online worship became a real issue and a challenge for churches across the world. But the learning curve is steep, the stumbling blocks many and the competition, from other organisations trying to win viewers, immense. If you are struggling to produce online worship or doing it but know you can do better, then this is the course for you.

Three one-hour units take you through both theory and practice. You can join an online community and get help from others wrestling with similar issues. You will hear from those leading worship online regularly and those who work in professional broadcasting. And there are practical tips galore to make your streaming stand out and make an impact.
It’s totally free.

All you need to do is register and start the course at your own pace. God is reshaping the Church and it’s up to us to catch up and move with him.


Whole Life Preaching

Produced in partnership with the LICC, this 6 unit module explores the power of preaching for everyday life and is aimed at church preachers and teachers. The module explores how a focus on whole life disciple making can transform the way we preach.

London Institute of Contemporary Christianity


All we do is shaped by the challenges and opportunities of the people we seek to serve…

Christians out in God’s world – in workplaces and all places; church leaders and their teams; women and men in their first decade after school or uni. And the many, many people in all kinds of churches who want to make a difference for Christ in all of their lives.

So we’re dedicated to developing the biblical wisdom, the cultural insights, the stories and the practical ideas that help people live out God’s living word creatively, show and share his good news confidently, and make a positive contribution to the places they live, work and play.

We offer resources for personal or small group use. Courses for people at different stages of their working lives. Training days and learning hubs for church leaders. Speakers. Events. Books. Blogs. Videos … And more to come.
