Ongoing training


Picture by Philip King.

If we are to sustain a faithful ministry, we need to find a range of support. Some of this is more formal, planned and expected of us: opportunities to learn at particular stages in ministry; regular structured review. Some is more informal, spontaneous and left to individual initiative: learning that reflects our own interests; a regular meeting with a peer group, a consultant or a spiritual director.

Effective development relies on the diocese and the individual minister taking their share of responsibility.
