Vocations


It’s your call

Are you wondering whether you are called to some kind of ministry, whether lay or ordained?

God calls us all to follow and serve him, and every person's vocation is just as unique as they are. 

Your vicar or minister is a good starting point for discussion about how God might be calling you or you may wish to attend a discipleship course

Young Vocations

If you are under 30 and beginning to explore a sense of call, you might find these webpages helpful - they contain information about the Church of England Ministry Experience Scheme,  which is a good opportunity to spend a supported year in a parish placement as part of your discernment process.
