It's Your Calling

During the year the Vocations Team puts on a number of events, and holds regular vocations days under the title, 'It’s Your Calling'.

'It’s Your Calling' days are held three times each year, with venues rotating around the Archdeaconries, and takes place during the day on a Saturday.

We've also created a series of leaflets to explain some of the different ways vocation can be expressed - from ordained and non-ordained (lay) ministry, to living out our call in our day to day lives.

Is it for me?

It is aimed at those exploring where God may be calling, and looks at our journey and the gifts that God has given us, as well as the Biblical understanding of vocation.

The day gives an opportunity to meet others on a similar quest and to take time to think where God could be calling. 

After It’s Your Calling, there is an opportunity to make contact with a Vocations Adviser, for an informal chat.
