The Ministry Formation shall have three separate but co-operating sections, namely:
Continuing Ministry Formation, which will:
a) target ordained and lay persons, being those exercising particular leadership responsibilities, such as clergy, churchwardens,
parish councillors and parish ministers.
b) provide shorter courses and workshops.
Training for Ordained Ministry (TfOM), which will:
a) target ordinands and those testing a call to ordained ministry.
b) encourage, empower and support potential clergy in all stages of the ordination process.
c) ensure that, after being ordained deacon, each person completes a clearly specified 3-year process of continuing formation and skills training, under the direction of the Post-Ordination Training Units.
This Section includes the Desmond Tutu School for Ministries which is responsible for the Fellowship of Vocation and the training of ordinands.
Ongoing Clergy Formation, which will
a) offer ongoing formation and training to stipendiary and self supporting clergy in the Diocese and will.
b) provide ongoing encouragement, formation and support to all clergy.
