Each of us hears God’s call at different times and in different ways. God never stops calling us whatever our age and experience.
The vocations team love working with those who are in their later years who might be hearing a different call on their lives. For some that might be a call to ministry and maybe ordination. We are keen to connect with people whatever their age and circumstances.
Ordination in later years
Many people hear their call to ordination later on in their lives. We support candidates for whom their vocation to ordained ministry sits alongside a calling to another profession or alongside retirement as they go forward as self-supporting ministers. We are currently exploring ways in which candidates who have a mature faith and professional leadership experience to do an accelerated discernment process and training.
