Event: Vocations Weekend with St John's College

Do you know anyone in your congregation or circle of friends and colleagues who would like to explore God's call on their life? They may like to join us on our Vocations weekend - Exploring Your Calling at Launde Abbey, Leics. 

After a break for a couple of years, St John's College is once again holding a vocations weekend to help people explore God's call.

This year the course will be held in the beautiful surroundings of Launde Abbey, East Norton, Leicestershire, LE7 9XB and will be led by Revd Dr John Tomlinson and staff from St John’s and the Midlands Institute for Children, Youth and Mission.

There will be workshops and sessions covering numerous forms of vocations including youthwork, ordination and lay ministry, chaplaincy, workplace ministry. 

The weekend programme also includes time for quiet reflection and contemplation, opportunities to walk around the grounds and shared worship with others at Launde Abbey.

The programme is based around Fit for the Purpose workbook which will be supplied for use in preparation and through the weekend and tutorial support will be offered for a couple of months after the weekend so the course can be completed by distance learning.

Cost: £195 to include all accommodation and meals from Friday evening to Sunday noon and tutorial support to complete the Fit for the Purpose distance learning course.  Please pay on the online shop - Vocations Weekend

If you cannot come in October there will be a further opportunity 22-24 March'19  - please contact registry@stjohns-nottm.ac.uk to be added to the waiting list.
