EfM 2018

 

Education for Ministry 2018

Today’s church upholds the ministry of the laity: all baptised people have a ministry.

To effectively exercise this ministry we need to be informed and skilled.

EfM helps us to interpret the richness of the church’s faith in our complex world and to express it with confidence, in both words and actions, in our day-to-day lives and in our own communities.

EfM can be summed up as Exploring faith Matters.

EfM is formational and transformational for Christian life and ministry.
