This series contains material related to training courses entitled "Ready to serve?: an introduction to leadership in the local church." The course was designed to provide training for male and female church leaders and workers who had been recommended by the elders of their church. The papers here show that the course was held at least four times at different churches between 1992 and 1995. A follow-up course entitled "Ready to Evangelise?" was also held at least once, which suggests the initial course was successful.
The series includes a course booklet and loose sheets used during the course, letters, leaflets advertising the courses and a report of a training meeting.
