Candidating methodist church uk

We refer frequently to the Candidating material and resources and, certainly in the earlier sessions to the requirements of CPD.In each session there is time for questions and discussion which means that sometimes those questions take priority over the set programme.

For information about the various ways in which this is possible, please download the handbook.In the Methodist Church, Candidating is the shorthand term for offering for the ordained ministry.It is the process by which you and the church test your call.This will begin in your circuit, before going to the district and then to a selection committee that represents the Connexional Church.If God is calling you to ordained ministry in the Methodist Church as either a Deacon or a Presbyter, your first step is to talk to people in your local Circuit and work through the information and advice on the Methodist Church website about candidating for ministry.Would you appreciate information, practical help, mutual support and theological reflection along the way?If so, the Candidates' Support Group is for you and you would be most welcome.Once the British Methodist Church has accepted you for ministerial training, the decision about your training pathway will be decided by an Allocations Panel of the Connexional Oversight Committee.Whichever pathway is the one to which you are allocated, Queen’s will equip you to serve a diverse church with confidence and creativity.Processes also exist for recommended candidates, student ministers and probationers of other churches and conferences wishing to train and serve in the Methodist Church in Britain.These individuals are advised to send an email outlining their circumstances to [email protected] with their status (ie recommended candidate/student/probationer) and the word 'transfer' in the subject heading.
