Occasional Preachers
 
 
22nd April, 13th May and 17th June, 9:30am - 4:30pm, St Leonard's Church, Penwortham, PR1 9JA.
 
We aim to equip those who already preach occasionally, and those who may be asked to do so, to do so in ways that honour God and God's Word and help to build up the Body of Christ in their contexts. The course is very practical and 'hands-on' and, if the participant's incumbent and PCC support them, entitles those taking part to be 'Occasional Preachers'.
