The aim of Clergy Development is to help clergy as they continue to grow and learn in ministry and theology, from curacy to retirement, so they in turn can help their congregations learn and grow in spiritual depth, in mission and in service.
Clergy Development Team
There is a team of five Clergy Development Officers working together across the diocese. Each Clergy Development Officer (CDO) oversees both the Initial Ministerial Education for the Curates (IME) and Continuing Ministerial Development (CMD) for the clergy in their own episcopal area.
Please contact the CDO for your episcopal area with any queries about CMD or with requests for CMD grants. If there is a vacancy, please contact Steve Proudlove, Director of Ministry Formation and Development.
