Calling over-50s with a calling...

26 April 2017 19:30

Address: The Education Centre, Guildford Cathedral, Stag Hill,, Guildford, GU2 7UP
Ever wondered about whether God might be calling you to a new kind of ministry but thought you were:
  • too old
  • not clever enough
  • not needed
  • not experienced enough

Well why not come along to this open session on Wednesday 26th April designed especially for you to think about opportunities, calling, discernment and training possibilities.  Primarily, we will be thinking about ordained ministry on this occasion – but do come to explore the idea of vocation in its widest sense.

Canon Dr Hazel Whitehead and Canon William Challis will be joined by Revd Carol Monk, Revd Mike Harle, Revd Jackie Drake-Smith, Revd Dr Steve Summers and Mr Mike Currier (a final year ordinand on the Local Ministry Programme).   They will share their stories, compare experiences and answer questions.

Timetable for the evening:

7.30          Drinks, welcome, prayer and introductions

7.45          Vocation in Scripture:  a refresher       

                  What is happening in the Church right now

 8.05          Stories from Course, College and Ministry
                  and time for questions

 8.40          An opportunity to speak to each other and to speakers and to look
                  at resources

 9.00          Naming the Obstacles

9.15          Final prayers, closing remarks and what will happen next.
