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.

Ministers and circuits going through stationing in the forthcoming Connexional year, are invited to attend one of two scheduled training sessions. We strongly encourage church stewards (from where the minister has pastoral oversight) to attend. Please choose your session below to register.
