Continuing Ministerial Formation Officer

As a diocese, we want to grow in encouraging and supporting the gifts and vocation of the whole Body of Christ, and these posts are a key part of our commitment to support ministry and help people of all ages find their place and role in God’s work in the world.

This post combines responsibility for the ongoing training for all licensed ministers (clergy and Readers) with responsibility for nurturing their ongoing formation as disciples of Jesus Christ. 

As Continuing Ministerial Formation Officer, you will ensure that there is a rich pattern of training opportunities to develop skills and offer tools for the tasks ahead, and you will also help nurture and support licensed ministers in their faith and vocation. 

You will be someone with a keen theological mind, whose deep faith is rooted in theological reflection in everyday life. You will also have experience of helping others to grow in faith and a track record of encouraging the vocations and ministry of others. 

For an informal conversation about either post contact the Director of Mission and Ministry, the Revd Canon Rob Saner-Haigh, 0191 270 4112
