Overview

The SCM Studyguide: Practical Skills for Ministry offers a practical introduction for those who are training for ministry, both lay and ordained, within the church. The book answers the questions asked by those preparing for ministry and by those who have recently started and found gaps in the way they have been prepared. The author uses real examples drawn from his experience of over 20 years of pastoral ministry, together with work in chaplaincy and broadcasting and the shared experience of others. The book covers all those aspects of ministry required within the more practical contextual areas of the course of preparation for ministry in use by mainstream denominations, such as baptisms, weddings, working with others, communication, meetings and funerals. It provides practical guidance which is soundly theologically and pastorally based.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This is one of those books which does exactly what it says on the cover. It is not a theology of ministry, nor is it a source of models and approaches: instead, Andrew Pratt distils into a little under 200 pages a career’s worth of practical experience of the bread-and-butter issues of ministry. How soon to visit after a bereavement? How to respond when someone asks you to baptize their dog? How to arrange the seating in a meeting so as to get the best dynamic?'
Roger Latham (Lancashire and Cumbria Theological Partnership)
