​​Authorised Lay Ministers

​​What is an Authorised Lay Minister


Authorised Lay Ministers (ALMs) are lay people active in church life, who have been identified by their parish as having a particular gifting, vocation or calling to share in the team ministry of the local church. ALMs are nominated by their incumbent and PCC to be trained, nurtured and equipped in preparation for being ‘commissioned’ by the Bishop to carry out a mutually agreed ministry role back within the local parish context.
