Called to be ordained?

Wondering if you’re called to be…ordained?

Read these words and look at the image below 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?
