Local Preaching

  • Wesley Study Centre, Durham has also been exploring new opportunities for supporting the training and ongoing development of Local Preachers within the Methodist Church. This has included working with the Newcastle and Darlington Districts of the Methodist Church and Lindisfarne Regional Training Partnership to develop different local options for those wishing to train to become new Local Preachers. New options for supporting the development of existing Local Preachers are also being considered. A feasibility study has recently been completed on these options, including consultation with Local Preachers’ secretaries and tutors on their views. Watch this space for further information as these proposals develop.
