Vocation Conference For Men Considering Priesthood
1st - 3rd SEPTEMBER 2017
St Stephen's House
Tel: 0121 382 5533
The conference is based at Saint Stephens House Oxford 2nd-4th September starting with tea on the Friday and ending with lunch on the Sunday, accommodation and all meals are included. We do invite a small contribution of £75 towards the cost (there are grants available to help with this cost and with travel if necessary). Each place is subsidised by at least twice that amount of money by the Additional Curates Society.
The conference seeks to inform about process of discernment and selection and requirements that the Church of England sets. We like to set this conference within a theological college as it gives people an experience of the life that full time residential training presents us with. Although we are very conscious that not everybody will be training for full time ministry and increasingly people present themselves for self-supporting ministry. There is a chance to explore these patterns of service and also sector ministry such as chaplaincy. We will give you the opportunity to socialise and get to know others exploring ordination and ground it all in a few days of prayer and reflection.
We would very much like to invite you to join us . Please do complete the booking form and return it to us together with your contribution and letter of support from your Parish Priest, either in the post or e-mail this back to us and payments can be taken over the phone using all major credit/debit cards. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if there is any further information you require.
