Ministry Trainee Scheme 2017/2018


St. Mary’s Church, Lutterworth is a growing Evangelical Anglican Church set at the heart of the historic market town of Lutterworth. Our Vision is that we will be “All About Jesus” in all that we do and are: that we will become more like Jesus as we follow him day by day. We are committed to expertly and deeply-applied Bible teaching, as well as supporting and encouraging every-member ministry. We are delighted to offer our Ministry Trainee Scheme as part of our aim to learn and tell the Good News and to train in mission.

We are looking for up to two trainees who can join our closely-knit team of staff and volunteers for a year of discipleship and leadership training in a local church ministry context.

Training will be provided one day a week through the Midlands Ministry Training Course (MMTC) in either Nottingham or Birmingham (for more details see, through two residential week-long Formation conferences (, supplemented by guided reading, in house training plus additional conferences throughout the year.

If you are interested in joining us to serve God in Lutterworth, growing according to your own gifts then why not get in touch for an informal chat and see if this opportunity is right for you.

Good Friday Devotions 2016

On Good Friday evening we will be holding a special event – a devotional service of songs, hymns and readings reflecting on the Easter story.

We are hoping to get a good choir together for the service. If you’d like to join chat with Charlie or just turn up at the rehearsals on Thur 10th March at 7pm, Tues 15th at 7pm, Thur 17th at 6pm, Mon 21st at 7pm

If you’re going to sing, we thought it would be useful to put the music online with some videos to help you to get more familiar.

Lord, For Thy Tender Mercy’s Sake (Farrant)

The words are slightly different in our version, but it should become clear.

Fling Wide the Gates (Stainer)

This version does mess around with the tempo a little, but the dynamics are about right.

O Nata Lux (Tallis)

Singing in latin gives the opportunity for really lovely vowel sounds.
The meaning is:
O Light born of Light, Jesus, redeemer of the world, with kindness deign to receive the praise and prayer of suppliants. You who once deigned to be clothed in flesh for the sake of the lost, grant us to be made members of your blessed body.
Translation: Robert Coote

God So Loved the World (Stainer)

The important factor in making this piece really work is to sing with heart – emphasising the meaning of the words rather than only the music. It’s a very contained piece.

Is it Nothing to You (Ouseley)

This piece will be sung by a small group from the choir. I’m afraid I can’t find a YouTube version to show you.
