Diocese of Chichester

'Jesus' gifts were......to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of God' Ephesians 4:11-13

Discipleship is the calling of all Christians and those who respond to God's call to follow him share explicitly in his ministry and mission in the world. We want to ensure that learning connects with life experience and ministry on the ground and so, through the work of our department, we seek to promote opportunities for learning so that Christians may seek to know, love and serve Jesus and, by doing so, share in the apostolic task.
