God calls each and every one of us in so many ways to do His will

Are you, or do you know someone who is being, called by God? If so, we are here to help you.

Our Fellowship is about exploring what we feel God is calling us to; it might be a church warden, a foundation governor, a Eucharistic Assistant – the list is endless and not limited to those who feel called to licensed or ordained ministry.

Take a look at some examples

Watch one of our vocation videos


  • a caring atmosphere in which people can talk and listen, share a meal and each other’s company
  • a chance to discover how similarly – and how differently – we each hear God’s call in our lives

If you are hearing God’s call in your life, if you are curious or just feeling unsure about what it all means then we are here for you. Talk to your vicar, your LMA convenor, your Area Dean, one of our vocations advisors or the Lay Development team (<<<they’re listed over on the left of this page)

There are FoV groups all over the diocese and more are starting up every year.

The Lay Development Team also offers three coffee morning training courses that can be delivered to your church, Ministry Area or Deanery on Saturday mornings from 10am to Noon (other days can be arranged):

You can book one here



  • Reading the Bible Sure and Strong – how to enjoy reading lessons in church
  • Praying to God on behalf of others – how to lead intercessions
  • Everybody Welcome – making your church a friendlier place for friends and strangers alike


On Saturday 6th May 2017 The Lay Development Team hosted the third in the series of Growing Hope conferences at the University of Wales Trinity St David, Carmarthen, as part of the continuing Diocesan Strategy.

The theme for the day was Pioneer Ministries. 

GH3Workshop2  GH3Workshop1

There were ten workshops with speakers who have worked in different areas of ministry and shared their experiences

These were chosen to provide a wide and varied look at ministries of hope and good news from different locations across the diocese.


The success of Growing Hope conferences relies on delegates taking their experiences back to their churches to share more widely.  This has led in the past to many developing new and inspired ways in which to commence or even re-start outreach programmes and other projects in order to spread the Good News of Jesus.
