Nicky Busby: Pathways Training – OLM Training I have been involved with church for the last 25 years, I am 46 My husband is Phillip and I have three children. Harry, Becky and Tim.
We live in the small hamlet of Chilcote and we grow Strawberries which are rather nice, I’m told!!
My time with the Mease Valley churches started about 19 years ago, I helped with family services, reading the bible, saying intercessions, gradually through more involvement with PCC, Joint Council, Ministry Team, Deanery Synod and now JBC, I have grown in my faith and believe I have a firm friendship with Christ. I lead services, talks and prepare services, with the Bishops agreement I lead Communion by Extension, as required, I am involved with Messy church, Prayer Group and Small Groups.
My journey has progressed this summer: following my calling I attended a Diocese Advisory Panel (DAP) and then was recommended to go before the Bishop’s Advisory Panel (BAP), this took place at the beginning of June and to my delight and wonder I was recommended for training to Ordained Local Ministry.
It is with joy and some trepidation that I will be starting the OLM training at the end of September 2015. As we face the challenge of sharing the Good News in our Mease Valley Benefice: I pray for the strength and support of Christ to be with us all.
I look forward to meeting with you and sharing the Good News.
