Meet Revd Tim Goodbody
Revd Tim Goodbody is our Diocesan Director of Ordinands (DDO).
The role of DDO is to listen to people who are sensing that God may be prompting them to explore a vocation as a priest. The DDO is attentive to the story of the individual’s life and faith as a whole.
A process of discernment helps the DDO decide whether to recommend to the Bishop that the person should be sent to a Bishop's Advisory Panel, who test the candidate's calling within the framework set by the Church of England and then recommend to their Bishop if they should be trained for Ordained Ministry.

The Bishops have appointed a person in each Deanery who is available to people who would like to talk through their sense of vocation.
Vocation Advisers are not part of any formal selection process but are willing to offer advice.
They are also available to parishes and are willing to preach on vocations or speak at special events.
