Living Ministry

Living Ministry is a major research project recently launched by the Ministry Division, exploring how the church can help clergy to flourish in ministry. Ministers ordained in 2006, 2011 and 2015 and those who started training in 2016 have been invited to take part in the project, which will return to them every two years over a ten-year period, through surveys, interviews and discussion groups, to find out what they are doing, how they got there and how they are. More information on the research and how to take part can be found at
