Fifteen people from different parts of the UK came together this weekend in Manchester for the SCP Vocations Weekend, based at Luther King House and St Chrysostom’s, with visits to several different churches.
Those taking part came from a great variety of places – Downpatrick, St Asaph, Birmingham, London and more. Busy, inspiring, varied and fun ccould sum up the time together. Friendships were made, and encouragement shared.
Highlights included (in the words of those on the weekend) – “visits to a variety of parishes and meeting different forms of ministry, fellowship with one another, Benediction, curry night.”
We asked those coming to sum up their experience of the weekend. Here are some of the answers “A wonderful opportunity to explore my vocation,” “Excellent. Was very helpful in encouraging me…” “It has been a fun, interesting, thought provoking and thoroughly enjoyable weekend that has really helped me explore my call to ministry.”
Stephen, who was on the weekend reflects on it here.
Thank you to all who made the weekend possible. It was not only participants who enjoyed it. Those who helped were encouraged by those taking part. It’s great too that many of those taking part have said they will keep in touch, and continue to share thoughts arising from the time together.
We look forward to 2016’s Vocation weekend!
