Archdeacon open afternoon

October 12, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Bishop of Stepney, with the Diocese of London Archdeacons will be holding an online ‘open afternoon’ webinar on Tuesday 12th October from 2-5pm.

This has a dual purpose: to inform people about the work of an archdeacon and also to encourage potential archdeacon candidates. This is for anyone interested generally in learning more about what archdeacons do and it is for people who might be interested in future archdeacon posts, here or elsewhere, particularly with the vacant post of Archdeacon of Hackney in mind.

Subjects covered will include:

  • Strategic change and governance at Episcopal Area and Diocesan level
  • Visitations, buildings and faculties
  • Safeguarding, discipline and conflict
  • Being a UKME leader and a woman leader in the Diocese of London
  • Culture and spirit of Archdeaconing

There will be additional opportunities at the end of the event to further enquire about the life and work of the Archdeacons for potential applicants for the post of Archdeacon of Hackney including:

  • Private Q&A and 1:1 coaching calls
  • Shadowing opportunities
  • Advice on the application form and interviews
  • Discussions about ministry development.

Anyone interested is welcome to join this webinar for some or all of the time. For any further enquiries and for the webinar link please email areaadmin.stepney@london.anglican.org.
