When they found him they said, ‘Everyone is searching for you!’ He answered, Let us go on to the neighbouring towns so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do.’ (Mark 1, 37-38)
For fourteen years our Pastoral Assistant Scheme has provided a way for young adults to explore the ministry to which Christ is calling them. Each year we appoint three Pastoral Assistants to spend a year serving others by living, working and praying in our diverse urban community. It has proved a life-changing experience for these young people and given the benefits of new gifts and fresh insights to our four churches. It has also provided a steady stream of young ordinands to the wider Church. We provide excellent supervision, formation and guidance for those in the process of discernment and have now broadened that base to work in conjunction with sister schemes in Hornsey and Tottenham to form the North London Pastoral Assistant Scheme.
