Bishop's Commission for Mission


Are you a lay person? Would you like some encouragement for your existing ministry, or for a developing vocational path? More interested in learning from passionate practitioners and others in ministry than in getting a formal qualification? Want help to see your ministry through a missional lens? Then Bishop’s Commission for Mission could be for you.

BCM Overview

About BCM

BCM (Bishop's Commission for Mission) is a lay training programme focused on enabling church members to live the mission of Jesus in every part of their lives, equipping them to live out their vocation to the full. Through participating in the programme we believe God will shape you for your place in his mission.

To qualify for the training programme you will need to be recommended by your incumbent and PCC, who will usually pay your training costs. Once you have successfully completed the programme, you will be commissioned by the Bishop of Winchester for your role..
