Our Curate's programme supports the initial years of leadership in ordained ministry.

Each curate is required by the Bishop to take part in this programme of learning in their first four years of post-ordination ministry. The content is designed specifically for this important stage of ministry, with the chance to share experience together.

Curate training is overseen by the Right Reverend Ruth Worsley, Bishop of Taunton and the Training Team Leader.
