VicTas Lay Preachers Annual Conference
March 21, 2020 - March 22, 2020
Friday 20 March – Saturday 21 March 2020
The 2020 Conference will be held at the Centre for Theology and Ministry in Melbourne from Friday night, March 20th to Saturday March 21st.
The President, Bruce Hill, has asked Maclean House to set aside rooms for Lay Preachers on the Friday night to encourage people from Tasmania and country Victoria to attend. This provides accommodation at a reasonable rate on site for the event. More details: https://ctm.uca.edu.au/support-services/accommodation/
The Lay Preachers’ Committee of Management have been discussing the question of payment to lay preachers and draw your attention to the document Lay Preachers and Payments (2019) which can be obtained from https://victas.uca.org.au/ministry-mission/lay-preachers-association/. This has been particularly interesting in places where Lay Preachers have been transitioning to other forms of ministry.
Lay Preachers are reminded that the paperwork for the Annual Checklist and Applications for acknowledgement of Continuing Education will be available in December for completion in the new year.
