After Ordination

Curacy, also known as initial ministerial education phase two, is a vital time in which newly ordained ministers continue to learn and grow in the roles to which God has called them.

It is the agreed policy of the House of Bishops that newly ordained ministers should serve at least three years in a training post before taking on a post of incumbent status.

You will find our policy and guidance for dioceses below:

Appointment of curates

Formation and assessment in curacy

 

Title posts

After their first phase of training, ordinands need a ‘title post’ to which they will be ordained and in which they will continue their training as a curate.

For ordinands who have been ‘released’ by their sponsoring diocese and are seeking a title post in a different diocese, this page acts a noticeboard of vacant positions. Click on the headings below for more information. Please use the contact details provided with each advert for more information on the post and how to apply. 

Guidance and support for candidates during this process is the responsibility of the ordinand’s TEI and sponsoring diocese, with the TEI normally taking the lead role when candidates are considering a title post in a different diocese, so please raise any questions or concerns with your TEI.
