How is God Calling You?

The Church of England is passionate and committed that all vocations should be recognised, regardless of gender, age, colour or background. This does not necessarily mean to ordained ministry. We have Licensed Lay Ministers (Readers), authorised lay workers (chalice assistants, servers, vergers, etc) and recognised lay workers (lay pastoral assistants).
If you feel that God might be calling you to ‘something’ but you’re not sure what, do please speak to Fr Tony, Mthr Samantha or Canon Anthony.

Women’s Ministry

Fifty years ago last month, it became possible for women to be Readers.
Twenty-five years ago this month, Portsmouth Diocese ordained its first women to the Priesthood.
We look forward to and thank God for
the ordination of more women and men to the diaconate
and priesthood this Petertide.
