Transitions in Ministry


Transitions in Ministry (TIM) is a sub-group of the Continuing Ministerial Development group. We also regularly work with a number of Associate Trainers who contribute additional skills and experience to the team.


TIM offers a programme of residential consultations for clergy at transition points in their ministry. The training we deliver focuses particularly on the process of moving on to a new stage of ministry as well as on identifying and acquiring relevant skills.

Our ethos is inclusive and collaborative, based on learning from one another and sharing experience and good practice in an atmosphere of openness and trust. Our programme complements the CMD programmes of each individual diocese. By working across diocesan boundaries TIM enables larger gatherings on a more regular basis in a richer and more varied learning environment. We use a number of residential centres across the region.


Attendance at consultations is by invitation from your own diocese.

Each diocese pays for its own participants from its CMD budget.
