Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

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.
