News about Step Forward 2016

Monday 14th December 2015

Bookings are now being taken for the 2016 Step Forward event which will take place on Saturday 12th March 2016 in York.

“Serving God is one of the best things you can do with your life and there are many ways to carry out this calling. If you are a Christian aged between 18 and 30, might God be encouraging you to consider ordained ministry in the Church of England?”
Dr. John Sentamu, Archbishop of York

What is Step Forward?

A day for anyone aged 18 to 30 considering ordained ministry in the Church of England.

There will be:

  • Time for worship, prayer and Bible study
  • An opportunity to find out what being ordained is really like – its highs and lows
  • Space to look at your own experience and what God might be calling you to in the future
  • The chance to discover how the selection process and ordination training programmes work

Who is it for ?

Step Forward is for anyone aged 18 to 30 who is wondering whether God might be calling them to ordained ministry in the Church of England. You may have already taken some steps down this route – or you may never have thought about it until now! Either way, the day will help you think, talk and pray through this question.

When is it ?

The date for the next Step Forward event is Saturday 12th March 2016 from 11.00 am until 4.00 pm (lunch will be provided). REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!  

Anyone who would like to book a place can do so via the ‘Step Forward’ website
