Lifelong learning means that learning and development doesn’t stop at licensing – we are all challenged to continue to learn and grow in faith.

Continuous Ministerial Development (CMD) is very varied throughout the dioceses, and the CRC felt that one way we could serve LLMs nationally is to offer blended learning courses – complementing what is already available through your diocese. A questionnaire was distributed to all Wardens of Readers and the results from 42 dioceses were that this would be well received.
We are approaching some well known teachers, theologians and organisations to work with us to produce the courses.
Our first module on online worship launched on 10 July 20. Other modules will following in the autumn, including Preaching for the Everyday and Communicating Faith in the 21st century.
To sign up for a course go to moodle.cofeportal.org. If you don’t have a CofE portal account you will be directed to set one up, which is very straightforward, and then you can log in to Moodle and choose the Transforming Ministry section.
Currently the modules will be free to LLMs, and we hope to access grants to fund future modules.
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.
We are launching our first two modules in Autumn 2020 :
