Education for Ministry (EfM) is a four-year certificate programme of theological education for lay people. Participants commit for one year at a time, meeting in small groups for study and practice to aid them in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together. Participants take what they learn about scripture, church history, theology and ethics into their own lives and hearts, in order to support them in living out a vibrant baptismal ministry in the church and in the world. To learn more about the group connected to St. Thomas, please contact Rev. Jennifer Burgoyne.
Infinite Lord and eternal God,
Rouse your church in this place.
Restore your people’s sense of mission,
And revive your work in holiness and strength.
By your Spirit, teach us to give our energy,
Our time, our money, our service and our prayer,
That your kingdom may be advanced here, and in the entire world.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
