What is available in our Diocese?

Helping you explore your calling.

The Vocations Team: What we do

Our Vocation Advisers walk alongside those who are seeking to respond to a sense of call, or who are desiring to give more in their Christian life. We will explore with you your journey so far, your prayer life, and the ways in which you are already serving. Advisers may suggest reading or practical experience which will help you to grow, or offer advice and guidance in the Christian life. The aim is that we shall all have life in all its fullness.  

Some are called to serve in a lay capacity, some in an authorised or licensed ministry, and others to ordination as a deacon or priest. 

Deepening Discipleship Project  

The Deepening Discipleship Project is a new accompanied learning community beginning in September 2023 to support the growth and development of the ministry of God’s people in local churches across our Diocese.

A year long scheme for 18-30 year olds to explore their calling.

Our Diocesan Rhythm of Life is a pattern of holy living for everyone, disciples of all ages, enabling us to become more like Christ.
