This course is about exploring our vocation as Christians in the church and in the world. By vocation we don't just mean jobs or roles in the organised church. We see vocation as more than that and also more that doing any particular job. Our vocation is about who we are as the people God made us to be. It is about what God calls us to attend to from his point of view. It is about what our mission is in life and what actions we take to bring it to life.

Discerning our vocation is not something we can do on our own. This is a group activity that is facilitated, ideally by someone local who has been trained in the approach. Our vocations make most sense in relationship to others and need to be supported by the gathered church and leaders. Their involement is vital.
