Ordination Exploration Days

Wondering if you’re called to be…ordained?


 Read these words and look at the image to the side as   you ponder the questions

  Ordination is the culmination of a long process in which   the Church:

  •       Discerns the call of candidates
  •       Tests the call
  •       Forms ministerial development



Ordination goes hand-in-hand with your ‘reception into Full   Connexion’ with the Methodist Conference. This is when ministers and the Church/Conference enter into a covenant relationship, with the associated privileges and responsibilities.

We read of the early Christians: “All who believed  were together and had all things in common.” Acts 2:44 (NRSV)  

Methodism teaches us that we “watch over one another in Christian love.”

  • Who can you talk to about your sense of calling?
  • What type of community do you long to be a part of?
