ARCHBISHOPS COMMEND DEACONS’ CONFERENCE

I’m beyond encouraged to receive messages of support from both our Archbishops, for our conference in October.  Archbishop John says:

I am thrilled that, within the Church of England, there is a rediscovery taking place of the joys of Diaconal ministry.   Certainly in the Diocese of York we have seen an increasing number of people offering themselves for diaconal ministry, and this is something that we are seeking to foster and embed as part of the vibrant life of the Church in this Diocese.  I am delighted to commend this conference as a time to encourage one another in your vocation as Deacons, to share stories of all that God is doing in His Church, and to learn more of how to fulfil that Diaconal vocation to make Jesus Christ visible in our communities.

Archbishop Justin tells us

I am so pleased to hear of this conference for distinctive deacons. Their ministry of service and care to the church and to their communities is often hidden, yet it is a shining example of Jesus’ call to servant leadership. We know that the diaconate was a special and honoured vocation from the earliest times of the New Testament church. Today we thank them for their vocation, their dedication and their response to God’s call upon their life, and pray for God to encourage and bless them as they gather together.

  1. You could get a lot of encouragement from this event.
    With all due respect, Deacons On The Move, sounds like a really good name for a haulage company!
