Professional Development

The Ordinal calls for those ordained in each of the three orders to be diligent in the study of the Scriptures. One of the questions asked of the ordinand during the ordination service, is, ‘Will you undertake other studies as will help you in your ministry?’ to which those to be ordained reply ‘I will.’ All clergy should, therefore, understand lifelong learning and continuous improvement to be an essential part of their development as persons in ministry. Coupled with this is the concept of annual review, providing a means to reflect on the year past and look to the year ahead, in the context of an annual evaluation and review.
