LifeCall – two chances to explore where God is calling
Where is God calling you? As Vocations Sunday approaches (Sunday May 12th), these two events can help you explore whether God is calling you into a new form of ministry and service.
We’re all called to Pray, Read and Learn, to Tell, Serve and Give – but for some that serving and giving takes the form of recognised and authorised ministry. As we seek to grow 1000 new leaders in this Diocese, we have two chances to explore if God is calling you into something new.
LifeCall – Ordained Ministry
On Monday April 29th Bishop Paul is hosting an event for anyone who might be interested in ordained ministry – and to find out that it’s a lot more varied than people often think.
You’ll be able to hear people talk about different types of ordained ministry – in parish ministry, in pioneering new ways of being church, in chaplaincy and being an ordained minister while working in a “secular” job in the community. Bishop Paul will talk about his own journey and calling and Simon Chesters and Debbie Ellison from our Diocesan Vocations team will be unpicking some of the myths and misleading ideas people have about ordination and ministry.
The event is at Bishops Lodge on the evening of Monday April 29th – refreshments from 7pm for a 7.15 start.
Here’s some video’s of just two of the people who’ll be there:
Church Army Discovery Day
Just before that, on Saturday27th April we have an event to explore working with Church Army. Church Army is all about working beyond the walls of the church to reach those who are in greatest need. People from the Liverpool Centre of Mission will be there to help you explore whether Church Army could be where God is calling you – and again, our diocesan Vocations Team will be there as well.
It’s on Saturday 27th April at the St Aidan’s Centre in Liverpool, from 10am to 2pm – you can find out more information and book in here.
