Keir Shreeves the Diocesan Director of Ordinands said: “Our discernment team continues to do significant work accompanying those exploring a call to ordained ministry.

“We are delighted to have sent 10 disciples of Christ (including some from underrepresented groups) to prepare for ordination at theological education institutions. Some ordinands are training on residential pathways, and some are on context-based routes.

“These candidates have been through a rigorous process of preparation and formation. Their training will now help deepen their knowledge of the Christian faith, develop habits of prayer, and grow skills for ordained ministry.”

Please remember them in your prayers.
