undefined 'My role as a Pastoral Worker ...'
Here MAGS WEBB, newly licensed at St Mary Magdalene, Ashton upon Mersey, tells of how she discerned her vocation to serve as a Pastoral Worker ... I’ve been a Christian all my life and over many years had been discerning my desire to serve God in a much deeper way. I started to discern the possibility of a call to ordination or ‘something else’ which God had yet to reveal.

A major new teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England has been lauched. ‘Pilgrim’ – as the course is called – has the backing of our two Archbishops, who said in a joint statement: “The Pilgrim course is a journey to the heart of God and to a living, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.”

undefined Resources to boost support for credit unions
The Archbishop of Canterbury commented a while ago about the need for a more ethical financial system and suggested that more should be done to promote responsible lending and saving. The Most Revd Justin Welby (pictured) also highlighted the value of credit unions to people struggling with finances. While that was interpreted as a ‘war on Wonga’ by sections of the secular media, nevertheless the Archbishop sparked a much-needed focus in wider society on the need for justice in financial affairs.
