Service for a new Ministry

Below are downloads relating to the Diocesan liturgy for a new ministry, including a useful checklist done by John Woolcock, former RD of Calder Deanery 

NB the idea is that those preparing such services will download the draft and "customise it" according to their situation, including hymns chosen etc - using the Notes, and the Example.

There are two versions of the Service - one for Institutions and Inductions; the other for Licensings.

NB collections at Diocesan services (Confirmations, Inductions, Ordinations etc) now all go into the Diocesan Growth Fund.  

We provide leaflets about the Growth Fund to be given out at Licensings / Inductions. 
(Donations, more generally, for the Growth Fund are gratefully received; we have now built up a capital sum, and grants for projects which may lead to growth are made from the interest on it.  If you would like to know more about making a bid for a grant from the Growth Fund, please speak to the Diocesan Secretary.)
