Why get ordained…in the Church of England…now?


Date: Saturday 30 January 2021, 10.00am-12.00noon
Location: Online, live on Zoom

What’s God laying on your heart about gospel ministry? Are you thinking about what he might be calling you to? In spite of Covid-19, economic downturn and challenges within the Church, God is still raising up workers for the harvest field.

So if you’re thinking about full time gospel ministry and considering, even in a very small way, ordination in the Church of England, why not join us for a morning to discuss these very questions: 

  • Why get ordained - at all?
  • Why get ordained - in the Church of England in particular?
  • Why get ordained - in the Church of England now, at this present time?

We greatly need more gospel-hearted, bible-believing ministers but we also need ministers who have been well-trained, who understand and embrace the historic doctrine of the Church of England and who are willing to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in - might this be you?"
