Lightwave leaders love to support each other.  Here are some of the ways in which you can give and receive support in your ministry:

  1. For ordained and lay ministers, a chance to walk your area with an experienced leader in rural mission, to pray and chat over possibilities or ongoing one-to-one mentoring or coaching .  In the first instance contact Sally Gaze on 07446933129
  2. Training days or workshops - Lightwave leader training tailor made for your needs and delivered locally.  Email lightwave.community@cofesuffolk.org
  3. Support to help you publicise your events, improve your presence online and with social media. Click here for help with Communications
  4. Small group resources in our Lightwave Resource Library  ​​​​​​​
  5. Film and music resources on our youtube chanel.

Lightwave Small Group Leader Training

​We run training for Leaders and Potential Leaders of Lightwave Groups from time to time throughout the year. Our usual 6 session course trains Lightwave group leaders and helpers by enabling them to experience and model the life of a Lightwave group.  These are groups which do life together - worship, serve, learn from the bible, pray and help new people to find faith too. We also have a zoom course with 3 sessions - With this online shorter version, you will need to do a bit of reading to fit it into a shorter time frame.  Come prepared to learn, to laugh, to pray and be both supported and challenged.  All Lightwave small group leader courses are free of charge.

Check out this page for details of the next event which will be posted as they are scheduled. 

​For more details download an Introductory Leaflet for a recent course or you can download materials for each week of the 6-week course: Lightwave Small Group Leader Training.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


Mission Shaped Ministry Flexi 

This flexible version is specifically designed for teams and Lightwave groups already serving in mission together. You choose the venue, the modules you want, and the order you do them. The training is delivered using expert trainers and coaches who will also help you to teach some of the modules yourselves. 

​Depending on the capacity of the Lightwave team, you can start whenever you like. The course is delivered flexibly with a group from local churches at your mutually agreed dates.

​If you are participating in msm flexi as part of the requirements for the Alternative Ordination Pathway, we will fit in with the deadlines prescribed by that course.

For an informal chat about whether this could be right for you or to arrange a date that works for you please contact: Archdeacon Sally Gaze, archdeacon.sally@cofesuffolk.org

​​For more details, you can download the Brochure for the current year or a list of all the MSM modules.​​​​​​​
