Ministry in different shapes and sizes

God calls each of us, with our different skills, gifts and passions, to a whole range of types of ministry. For some this will be based mainly in a Church or Christian community setting, for others in the home or other workplace, and others may be called to specific mission fields. Some are called to ordained ministry, others to authorised or other forms of lay ministry.

If you are considering a calling to a form of full or part-time Christian ministry, you may find it helpful to look at some of the links to Christian organisations (on the right). Please note, these are just some of the many options to explore.

Under-represented people groups

We are keen to encourage and support those people who want to explore vocation who may not have been well represented in the Church of England to date. This includes, amongst others, those who identify as Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME). If you would like to know more about this or have any questions, please contact us here.
