Exploring Ordination

Have you got a vocation, a call from God?

This particular calling is to serve God and all people through the Church’s ordained ministries. For this particular calling, it isn’t enough simply to be convinced yourself that you have a vocation.

You have to allow your sense of vocation to be tested by the Church through its discernment processes. It is the Church that validates and authorises that calling.

At the Anglican Diocese of Bendigo there are a wide variety of ministry expressions. These include ‘traditional’ parish ministry, community & hospital chaplaincy as well as pioneering ministries.
