Many the People, Many the Gifts
Many the people, Many the gifts. There may be times when you would like to come to a worship service and simply participate not as a leader, but at other times you may feel inspired to get involved in new ways.
How we plan and organise our worship at AUC is currently evolving, but if you are willing to read and lead please let our rota coordinator know.
If you would like space to explore worship leading further the Scottish Congregational College runs an excellent course called Training for Learning and Serving (TLS), which offers a range of opportunities in this area.
In 2016 a course using TLS Lite material is being offered in the East of Scotland. For more information please download the flyer in the Related Documents column on the bottom right of this page.
TLS - COURSES INCLUDE
- The Foundation Course (2 years) exploring some basics of Christian life, spirituality, theology, mission and service from a practical and contextual point of view, with specific application in a personally selected area of service.
- Gateways Into Worship (1 year) developing deeper understandings and opening up fresh experiences of worship to enrich personal participation and/or equipping for leading.
- Gateways Into Care (1 year) theoretical and practical learning providing opportunities to increase understanding of yourself, others and the gospel and to turn new insights into active love and care.
- Gateways Into Prayer (1 year) exploring a range of past and present expressions of spirituality to enable you to apply the insights to your own experience and to equip you to help others to do likewise.
- Experiencing Faith (1 year) broadening your knowledge and experience of other faiths with the aim of deepening understanding and stimulating dialogue.
- Performing Arts In Worship (1 year) of discovery and experience in a selection of disciplines from drama, dance, movement, mime, music and speaking to increase your confidence in using individual and group performance to inspire worship.
- TLS LITE locally arranged self-contained courses on a variety of Christian discipleship matters, with slightly less demanding material, sourced through material available from the United Reformed Bookshop.
