All are called
As members of the church, we all have a contribution to make to society. Some people are trained and set aside to enable others to minister in both their local community and their place of work.
God may be calling you to these or other ministries. The calling will be appropriate to your gifts and abilities and equally to do with God's purposes for creation.
You may feel that God is calling you to minister in one of the ways described in the section Ministry in the Church of England; explore these possibilities, but please do remember that all Christians are called to serve God with their gifts. We are all, ultimately, in full-time service for God. Give yourself time to consider all this.
