Rites of Passage Course (Birmingham)

Conducting Rites of Passage: Foundation Step

Lay worship leaders are often asked to "do" christenings / namings / baptisms, weddings and funerals. And it can be a daunting prospect, without any training. Let the Midland Unitarian Association of Lay Preachers and Service Leaders show you the way.

We are offering a four-part course, leading to a GA-recognised qualification – the Rites of Passage Foundation Step.

led by Rev. Ant Howe, Minister at Kingswood & Ministry Tutor of Unitarian College
