PfS course

Prepared for Service is a two year part-time programme of training which provides teaching, pastoral care and practical experience for individuals with the support of their local church.

PfS course primary image

PfS was established and run by FIEC for twenty years, but since September 2014 is now owned and run by Bethel Church Coventry as PfSPlus. You can read about the changes in this article.

These developments not only secure future PfS provision but will also enable the full student experience for those whose course would have been cut short in 2014.

Find out more about about the course on Bethel Church’s WLA website and register your interest in enrolling on PfSPlus - APPLY NOW.

    The Hub Conference
