Focus on Vocations


Women and men who feel called to a vocation to some kind of lay or ordained ministry in the Church of England will attend a Vocations Day at St Peter's Church, Brighton on Saturday 30 September (from 10am).

The Bishop of Chichester, Dr Martin Warner, will be the keynote speaker at the specially structured day organised by the Diocese of Chichester.

The Vocations Officer for the Diocese of Chichester, the Revd Dr Paul Redparth, said: “People of all ages, representing many different parishes and traditions, will enjoy talks, guided prayer, workshops and the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation.

“The day is aimed at encouraging those feeling called by God, and explaining more about the way in which the Church of England helps people explore the many pathways this sense of calling can follow.”

The Diocese is committed to increasing vocations both to full and part time ordained ministry, as well as various forms of lay ministry.

Candidates who find they do have a vocation are then supported both by their parishes and the Diocese as the journey begins.
