Ministerial Review

The Ministerial Review is an annual opportunity for clergy to take stock and reflect upon their ministry.  It comprises three key stages: a self-reflective questionnaire based on the vows at ordination; a reflective conversation with a fellow clergy-person; planning for future needs, with feedback provided to the Bishop and the Advisor for Christian Life.  The process is fundamentally confidential in nature to ensure each person gains maximum benefit from it.

As the ministerial review requires clergy with the calling, skills and competence in reflective companionship, appointed by the Bishop, this is currently offered to stipendiary clergy only.  However, the framework could be used by self-sustaining clergy and Lay Readers who wish to undertake intentional reflective practice.
