The Church of England is actively seeking more young people to serve as ministers within the church. The Diocese of Sheffield is especially keen to support those under thirty with exploring their vocation to ordination or to other ministries. We have several ways in which we support young vocations:
Young Vocations Champions
We have two Young Vocations Champions whose role is to support young people in their calling and to help them think about some of the specific joys and challenges of entering ministry at a younger age.
Ministry Experience Scheme
The Diocese of Sheffield Ministry Experience Scheme gives people aged 18-30 the opportunity, over 11 months, to experience ministry in a range of parishes in our Diocese along with theological education and time and space to discern what God’s call means for them.
The Ministry Experience Scheme is part of the Church of England’s national scheme and is for those who want to explore their vocation and discover what it is like to serve in a church across a wide variety of ministries, with placements ranging from cathedrals to small church plants, from rural to inner city. Contact Dan Christian for more information.
