If you have never been involved in lay service before you may have feeling of doubt, fear and uncertainty - you have questioned yourself and others about whether you:
- are you able enough for the lay service you feel called to? – others seem so confident
- do you really know that God loves you and has called you by name?
- want to respond generously to that call?
- ready to accept a CRB check if required for the role you are considering?
Still if the call is there then you may be ready now to offer yourself to God through the vocation of lay service.
