Open to all exploring God's call on their lives and seeking to understand how to respond. These sessions will offer the opportunity to meet others on the same journey, to reflect on aspects of ordained ministry in the Church of England and to explore a topic in group discussion. Each Session is standalone.
All sessions will be held at St Paul's Parish Rooms, Reading Road, Wokingham, Berkshire, RG41 1EH.
Is evangelism optional in ordained ministry?
Criteria H: Mission and Evangelism
Our guest speaker is The Revd Canon Chris Russell
Chris Russell has been proud to call Reading his home for the past 16 years. In 2001 he and his wife Belinda moved to take up the challenge at St Laurence Reading, a town centre church with a very small congregation, with a new mandate laid upon it by the archdeaconry to see young people come to faith and build new forms of church with them. It has been a more stretching, inspiring, exciting and demanding adventure than could ever have been imagined.
In 2013 Chris took up a part time role working for Archbishop Justin as his Adviser on Evangelism and Witness. This, alongside Prayer and the Renewal of Religious Life, and Reconciliation make the three personal priorities of ++Justin.
