Lay worship leaders are often asked to “do” christenings / namings / baptisms, weddings and funerals. And it can be a daunting prospect, without any training. Let the Midland Unitarian Association of Lay Preachers and Service Leaders show you the way.
We are offering a four-part course, leading to a GA-recognised qualification – the Rites of Passage Foundation Step.

Session 2: Christenings / Baptisms / Namings: 18th July
led by Rev. Lynne Readett
Session 3: Funerals: 26th September
