About this event

Leading and presiding at funerals combines a range of important skills and knowledge.  

Uniting Mission & Education's three-day course explores the practicalities around planning and leading a funeral – and combines this with the exploration of the basis behind grief and loss, and how the grieving person can be supported in a healthy way. If you feel called to learn more, this course can assist you with the tools to effectively preside at a funeral.

If you are seeking authorisation to become a Lay Presider, please introduce yourself to your Presbytery’s Pastoral Relations Committee (PRC) before registering for this course.
