'Is Church of England ministry for me?'


If you're asking yourself this question and considering gospel ministry in the Church of England, seeking to discern what God might be calling you to, we've drawn together here a list of organisations and resources that will help you think about the following:

- Where has the Church of England come from?
- What are the current challenges within the Church of England?
- Where is the Church of England heading?
- And if you're considering ordination, what's involved in the selection process?

We would also love to welcome you to one of our upcoming Open Mornings.
