Distinctive diaconal vocations and theological education

Andrew Orton, Cranmer Hall

Project description:

This project will explore the implications of ‘distinctive diaconal’ vocations for theological education under the Common Awards framework, through a dialogical project that brings together partners involved in one pilot area (the Diocese of York). This project will allow different perspectives on this ministry and their implications for the Common Awards curriculum to begin to be explored, starting within this geographical area. It will do this through facilitating constructive dialogue within this area that explores commonalities between stakeholders and draws out ‘better quality disagreement’ in relation to formation and continuing ministerial education, building in theological reflection throughout.
