There are a variety of study resources available around the Church. In the 1980s a Committee For Lay Ministry PCANZ produced a worthwhile booklet entitled “Aspects of Lay Ministry” a series of four studies by Chris Nichol. This pamphlet is now out of print but thanks to modern technology can be produced and shared as a .pdf file Click to read Aspects-of-Lay-Ministry.
As Lay Preachers we can learn much and gain experience from open honest discussion or sharing in small groups. In small Home Groups we can often study a particular topic or text and relate it to every day contemporary circumstances. As with Sermons there will be opportunities for extra reading, research and contemplation in pursuit of understanding.
