Licensed Lay Ministries

Licensed Lay Ministers (LLMs) perform a valuable and honoured leadership role in the church. They undertake the work of the laity in a publically visible way, in the context of the church’s worship and work. They are locally trained and are licensed by the Bishop to one or more of five specific ministries under the supervision of an incumbent or priest-in-charge.
