Vocation Sunday - 21 April

Published: 7th March 2024

Someone working with a young person in churchVocations Sunday takes place on 21 April in 2024.

We often think of vocations in terms of ministry within the church: to be ordained or a lay minister. However, vocation, simply means what you are called by God to be and do. For some, this will be in formal ministry whether lay or ordained. But for all of us it will mean serving God through faithful discipleship in everyday life.

As Christians, we are called to spread the Good News to everyone, to be a Christian presence in every community. Vocations Sunday offers us an opportunity to stop and reflect on our vocations both individually and corporately. Are we living our faith as we would like to? What changes might we make?

There are a number of people within the Diocese who can help you work out what God might be calling you to be and do. This could be your vicar or another member of your church leadership team or community. It could be friends, family, or co-workers. It might be a member of the Mission and Ministry team, especially if you feel called towards formal ministry. Or you might find a spiritual director helpful, and 
the diocesan Spirituality Connexions group can help you to find one.

Almighty and everlasting God, hear our prayer which we offer for all your faithful people, that in their vocation and ministry they may serve you in holiness and truth to the glory of your name; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
