What is Vocations Sunday?

Vocations Sunday takes place on the Fourth Sunday of Easter (with Easter Day being the first Sunday) each year in the Church of England. It explores how people have found their vocation: called by God to be part of the church.

You can find out more about it in the video below, created in 2021 by the Diocese of Leeds.

What does it look like to be called by God? Hear from our Director of Ordinations and Vocations, Derek Walmsley, and some special guests, in time for this year’s Vocations Sunday!

On Vocations Sunday 2021 (Sunday 25th April) Bradford Cathedral will welcome guest preacher the Revd Steve Proudlove.

Steve is Vicar of St John the Divine Parish church in Menston and also Assistant Diocesan Director of Ordinands and Vocations, working both with those who feel called to ordination and those who are discerning what God could be calling them to in other areas. He is married to Elaine, and has two children, Samuel and Phoebe, and a dog. Steve enjoys football and rock-climbing in his spare time. Originally from Scotland, Steve and Elaine have lived in London, Cambridgeshire, and also the Isle of Man, before falling in love with Yorkshire.

You can join us at the service by booking your seat, or by streaming the service live from 10:30am, and it will be available for catch-up for up to two weeks after. The sermon will be available separately as a video on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram TV on the Monday following the service.

The service will be streamed on YouTube, accessible via the video above.

This is also the last Sunday when we have our two trainee clergy who have been on placement from Mirfield Theological College – Josh and Kayleigh. You can find out more about them in our other blog post.
