If you are in your teens, twenties or thirties - we definitely want to hear from you!
Many younger people exploring their call, especially to ordained ministry, have either assumed they are too young or have been discouraged by others. The Church of England actively welcomes interest and conversation with young candidates who are considering ordained ministry.

Getting together
In Coventry Diocese we hold regular gatherings where you can meet others who are also exploring their calling to ministry. These gatherings are informal and you are welcome to come whether this is a first dip of your toe in the water, or whether you are further along the process. You can also contact us by email, on facebook or arrange to meet one of us in person for a coffee and chat.

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). 

To find out about the latest meeting or event for younger potential candidates, or for further information, please contact the DDO & Young Vocations Champion, The Rev’d Ellie Clack on or 02476 521 316.
