The flagship diocesan vocations day, Called to Serve, will take place on Saturday 29 January 2022 at Foxhill.
Fifty places are available to individuals who want to find out more about the different vocations available to them in the Church.
Attendees can pick two sessions from a menu of ten, each of which will be led by experienced people in that related field.
The sessions are:
- Youth, children, and families’ ministry
- Chaplaincy ministry (lay/ordained)
- Reader ministry
- Pastoral worker ministry
- Workplace ministry
- Being a church school governor
- The religious life
- Pioneering ministry (lay/ordained)
- Being a Church Army evangelist
- Ordained ministry (assistant/incumbent/etc)
Diocesan Director of Vocations, Sarah Fenby, says: "Called to Serve is for all who are exploring the range of ministries - formal and informal, ministerial and social - that God is stirring in His people as we rise in Christ to the needs and opportunities to serve transformatively in today’s world. There will be plenary sessions looking at our everyday faith and discipleship, and our listening to God, as well as introductory worship, a message from +Sam, and next step information to close the day. Lunch will be provided and there are ten workshops which will be repeated allowing a choice of two during the day."
Sarah will also write to all Incumbents to ask them to prayerfully consider who it is in their parish that they could invite to attend Called to Serve. If you know someone that is exploring, why not consider encouraging them to attend?
