A Worship Leader is a recognised and commissioned form of lay ministry. These lay ministers play a vital role in the worship life of a parish church. Local Worship Leaders are commissioned for five years and may be re- commissioned after review by the incumbent and the PCC. Our local Worship Leaders have undertaken training with the diocese (the course outline can be seen here: Truro Diocese Website).
Other members of the Parish have recently been approved for Worship Leader training, and they are looking forward to joining the lay ministry team.
What do worship leaders do?
Worship Leaders are part of the whole worship team and work with or without the clergy to help lead services. Some are Eucharistic servers, some help with the Service of the Word and others help to lead Breathing Space and children’s worship. They also help with Quiet Days and other special services.
Their work is very important to the life of this parish. We are a priesthood of all believers and the clergy are thrilled to be able to share in their work with others. It is a blessing to have our Worship Leaders offering their time so freely to the parish.
