Diocese of Manchester

New priests outside cathedral
Our diocese provides resources and training at key moments for all ministers, including ordinands, curates and first incumbents, and those moving into new posts, taking on new responsibilities and preparing for retirement.

Training is provided every two years for new area deans, and work is being done at present with team rectors to look at how teams may be strengthened and how good practice might be developed in the formation of new teams.

Through the Ministerial Development Review Scheme, further training needs are flagged up and the Continuing Ministerial Development Officer will help clergy access appropriate training. Julia Babb and Peter Reiss are here to support you with appropriate training and coordination of CMD.
