Miriam's Story - Foundations
This course was recommended by our Associate Vicar, Karen. My reason for doing the course... last year I did the Mission Shaped Ministry course, which I found to be very inspiring and really enjoyed the process of learning together. I also made some good friendships along the way.
I suppose this was the beginning of just letting go and being open to the possibility of doing more learning in future, I have since then attended Godly Play training for three days in July this year. I am looking forward to putting the training in practice.
Since being a teenager, I have been involved in volunteering as a Sunday school helper on and off and that has continued into my adulthood. Until recently, I have never had any formal training to equip me for this role, but I have had God`s grace and support from my Church Leaders as well as church family past, and present.
I have been told by friends and family that I should consider going into church ministry whether to work with children and families or as a pastoral worker. The joy within me has always been with children and families that`s where I feel are my strengths lie. I love working with this group of people.
I am not sure as yet where God is calling me or what this course will lead me to do in the future as for now I am open to learning and doing new things. Blessings
