In collaboration with the Sacraments Course tutors, the “Synods Sacrament course”, designed for training lay people to preside at the Sacraments in the case of pastoral need, has been revised. All the relevant material (notes for tutors and students, handouts, pro forma letters about administrative matters, rubrics for homework, reference documents, etc.) can be found in the folders below.
To find your way around the material (which is arranged in eleven different folders), go first “Read Me First”, which explains what the Course material consists of and where to find it, and Contents table, which lists all the available documentation.
Not all the documentation will be needed for every course and, as nearly all the documents are in WORD format, tutors will be able to adapt them to their own and their students’ needs.
The ministers and Church Secretaries of local churches that are considering asking members to do the Course should consult the documents in folder B, which gives a good idea of the expectations of students.
