Being a mentor

God calls people from all walks of life, and our ministers should reflect the society we are part of.

We recognise that discerning your vocation can be a daunting process, made scarier by a lack of people to talk to who aren’t formally connected to the discernment process. Sometimes it’s comforting just to have that solid shoulder to lean on when things get difficult.

We’re building a directory of mentors for historically under-represented Christians who can offer support through the discernment process. 

“Exploring vocation is a journey that we always take with others, because discerning vocation is the task of the church, not just individuals. Coming alongside someone seeking to discern where God is at work in their lives and where God is leading, is a huge privilege. Being a mentor will be a rich experience and a blessing: the blessing of seeing the God of love at work in the life of his people.”

Archbishop Justin Welby

"All of you who were baptised into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise."
