Anglican Church looks for Bermudian leaders

The Anglican Church of Bermuda is looking for Bermudians to seize leadership opportunities within the church, so they can avoid seeking priests overseas.

Later this month, the church will host four days of support and training for people interested in various ministries within the church. The programme, which will take place between October 27 and 30, will be led by Reverend James Lawrence, leader of the Arrow Leadership Programme.

Rev Lawrence will also preach at the Cathedral and lead training sessions with the Anglican's Church's Advisory Board for Ministry and Clergy while he is on the Island.

And next Wednesday at 7pm, he will present a training programme entitled “Growing Leaders” in the Cathedral Hall. The course focuses on developing leaders across the life of the church, and provides practical resources for running a leadership development process over a year.

Bishop Nick Dill, a graduate of the Arrow Leadership Programme, said the course is designed to help a range of leaders within the church community, not just the Clergy.

“It is too easy for us simply to become professional which, can lead to burn out or detachment,” the bishop said.

“James has been to Bermuda once before to help the Diocese think about evangelism. Now his focus in on training and encouraging leadership at every level of the Church, young and old in every aspect of ministry.”

The programme is open to members of all Christian churches, but while the event is free for Anglicans, it carries a cost of $25 for others.

Those interested in attending can register with the Diocesan Office by e-mailing diocese@anglican.bm or calling 292-6987.
