Exploring Vocation

God creates each of us for a purpose and gives us a unique place in the world. Christians describe this as our calling or 'vocation'. Vocation is about the whole of human life, not just what we do in church. Discovering what God is calling us to be and to do is a life-long process, as we grow individually and the needs around us change.

Prayer, reflection, Bible study and conversation with your parish priest or other Christian friends can all help us to listen to what God is asking of us.

You will also find our workbook Living Vocation helpful. You can use by yourself, or preferably with others. If you’d like a paper copy (for the cost of printing and postage) contact Lesley Steed.

Fellowship of Vocations

The Fellowship of Vocations meets six times each year, usually in Bury St Edmunds.  It is open to anyone who has a sense that God is calling them to refocus their discipleship in some new way. It allows those exploring a sense of vocation to develop a greater understanding of the Christian tradition of vocation discernment, and provides opportunities to discuss one’s own possibilities with others on a similar journey, guided by members of the diocesan vocations team.

To register your interest in the Fellowship of Vocations, please contact Lesley Steed.
