Ordination

England desperately needs to hear the gospel, and we are keen to identify and encourage future generations of Christian leaders who will join us in sharing the greatest news in the world.

AMiE holds to the historic Anglican understanding of ordination as presbyter, as appropriate for some men and as faithful to the apostolic teaching. We are also keen to identify and encourage men and women who are considering other forms of full-time Christian ministry.

WHY PURSUE ORDINATION THROUGH AMiE?

Reformed Anglicanism

Rigorous
Discernment

Ongoing
Support

If you begin the ordination assessment process with AMiE, you will be connecting with a fellowship of churches that are committed to the Reformed understanding of Biblical faith, as outlined in the 39 Articles of Religion, the Book of Common Prayer, the Ordinal, the Jerusalem Statement and Declaration, and Article 4 of the AMiE Constitution and Canons.

We want to do all we can to work with you to discern carefully whether ordination is the right path for you at this stage of your life and ministry. Ordained ministry is challenging, and we want to care for you and God’s church by asking the right questions at each stage.

We will be on hand to offer advice and support as you go through the discernment process. If you become an AMiE ordinand, that advice and support will continue as decisions are made about appropriate theological and ministry training, options for gaining more ministry experience, and future ministry posts.

Care

Partnership

Global
Connections

Since our fellowship of churches is Anglican by conviction, we are committed to providing godly episcopal guidance and oversight. Our bishops serve our congregations, ministers and ordinands through their biblical teaching, prayerfulness, sharing of ministry wisdom, and active relational care.

Those engaged in our ordination discernment process, along with those who have been accepted as AMiE ordinands, are welcomed into a fellowship that provides them with mutual encouragement and challenge, prayer support, and opportunities to learn from one another.

Ordinations conducted by AMiE bishops are authentically recognised by Anglicans around the world. AMiE churches are connected to the global Anglican family through GAFCON.
