Training gospel workers is a key component of Chalmers' vision.  Through the year there are training events that are open to everyone, for example there is regular training in reading Mark's Gospel.  

There are two training programmes for people considering full time gospel work in Scotland:

Ministry Associate Programme 

As a church, we are committed to training gospel workers through the Ministry Associate Programme. Ministry Associates play a key part in church life. For two years people come and serve here, studying, receiving training, leading ministry and serving practically. This provides a wonderful opportunity to grow in maturity and competence. It can also help individuals to think through whether full-time gospel ministry might be a good fit for them in the longer term.

For more information about the programme please download the MAP booklet or contact Naomi Wright.

There are currently seven Ministry Associates serving at Chalmers:

Leaders in Training 

The concept of Leader in Training is a post-apprenticeship training role, where an individual trains for four years in a local church, alongside rigorous theological study.  There are two streams in the Leaders in Training Programme: Church Leaders and Women in Ministry. The Leader in Training programme has three components:

  • Training through doing ministry at Chalmers
  • Intentional training input from senior staff at Chalmers
  • Theological study

Robin Sydserff leads this programme, and along with the wider eldership works with the Leaders in Training to ensure their development across the four years.  There are three Leaders in Training currently serving at Chalmers.
