Her role is to engage with you if you are exploring a sense of calling and begin the conversations that will lead you to the right person who can listen and assist in taking things further along the route you choose.
The team work with Parishes and Deaneries as well as running events to help foster a sense of vocation and to provide information and access to all that is on offer.

Personal conversation and relationships are among the best ways to encourage vocations. The Church is challenging everyone involved in ministry, whether lay or ordained, to commit to having at least one conversation about vocation each month with someone different from themselves.
Starting a conversation could be as simple as a chat in the queue for tea or coffee about someone’s passions and gifts, but it could take you deep into questions of service, flourishing and witness.
Devotional resources filled with prayer, study, and reflection are available from the Church of England website, exploring what the Bible has to say about discerning vocation.
