Saturday 11th FEBRUARY at Christchurch, Christchurch Road, Epsom KT19 8NE from 9.30 to 1pm ending with a sandwich lunch Despite all our best efforts, there are still some women who find it difficult to believe that God may be calling them to authorised ministry; and some find it hard to speak about it to male incumbents or colleagues. This Vocations Session will be led by women for women. Present will be Revd Rosemary Donovan (Diocesan Adviser for Women’s Ministry), Revd Esther Prior (Team Vicar at St John the Baptist, Cove), Canon Dr Hazel Whitehead (Director of Discipleship, Vocation and Ministry) and others .
Saturday 25th MARCH at St Paul’s, Dorking.

Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic People
Saturday 8th APRIL in Woking led by Revd Beverley Hunt, Revd Folli Olokose and others. The Church of England would like to be fully representative of all people but the fact is that we are not very diverse in our authorised ministry body.
Wednesday, 26th APRIL from 7.30 – 9.30pm in Guildford led by Hazel Whitehead, William Challis and friends. More mature people bring different gifts, experience and wisdom. This is a session aimed at women and men who may think they are too old to have a vocation . . . they are not! Come and meet older ordinands and talk about discernment, training and possibilities.
