Education for Ministry Groups
Education for Ministry (usually abbreviated as EfM) is an adult learning program that seeks to enable people to see and to experience the connection between Christian faith and daily life. EfM helps us to interpret the richness of the church’s faith in our complex world and to express it with confidence, in both words and actions, in our day-to-day lives and in our own communities. EfM can be summed up as Exploring Faith Matters! It is formational and transformational for Christian life and ministry.
We do EfM in small groups led by trained mentors. Through individual study, sharing discoveries and exploring our faith together, we learn to think theologically. We connect what we come to know of the Christian tradition with our ordinary daily activities.
EfM is a serious program of study and reflection and requires considerable time commitment for you to fully benefit. However, people who have done the course have found it life changing.
‘There are several active EfM groups in Canberra. We are taking applications from new students now, and weekly meetings will commence 8 February at 6.30 pm with a ‘taster’ meeting for people to see whether EfM might be for them.
