Stationing is at the heart of who we are as a Connexional Church. During each Connexional year, ministers and Circuits explore with each other opportunities for mission and ministry within their local context. The District Chairs will meet with Circuits and ministers annually to engage in conversation about the needs and wishes for that ministry. 

Each circuit is expected to have an invitation committee to oversee their stationing process. The processes to be followed for the stationing of ministers will be made available to Circuit Stewards and others who need them through annual training sessions, which will give you the opportunity for full discussion of responsibilities and appropriate ways of carrying them out. 

**Invitations and Stationing Training

Ministers and circuits going through stationing in the forthcoming Connexional year, are invited to attend this training day on Tuesday 26 May. There are two sessions available. Participants are only required to attend one session. We strongly encourage church stewards (from where the minister has pastoral oversight) to attend. Please choose your session below to register.
