You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit – fruit that will last.
Ministry in the Church of England
As you try to discern what it is that God may be calling you to, it’s important to consider all the possible options. Although this website is concerned primarily with ordained ministry – below is a range of options so that your exploration can be as informed as possible.
Ordained ministers may be deacons or priests (also known as presbyters). Their work is to build up the Body of Christ in the Church and in the world through teaching, preaching and pastoral care. Priests are called to preside over the sacraments. It is a ministry of leadership and mission.
