Making Mission Possible

CPAS enables churches to help every person hear and discover the good news of Jesus

Fostering vocations

Are you a vicar trying to encourage people to respond to God's call? Or are you a member of diocesan staff – trying to encourage more men and women under the age of 30 to offer themselves for ordination, including pioneer ministry?

If the answer is 'yes', then CPAS wants to work in partnership with you.

CPAS works with the Church of England Ministry Division, diocesan officers and local church leaders so that together we may support, encourage, resource and develop vocational discernment within the Church.

Below is a growing library of tools to use with enquirers in one to one conversations or vocations groups, including Exploring Call - a guide for leaders in the local church.

We also offer the following events and resources, which can be recommended to those exploring their call:

If you would like further information, please call the CPAS office on 0300 123 0780.
Thank you.
