Deacons – Sometimes thought of as ‘boundary riders’, their role is to move fluidly between the life of the Church and the life of the wider community, where they typically live and work. A Deacon may be sent by a Bishop to fulfil a particular mission. This is an exciting role!
Priest – The Priest’s role is generally based in a Church community, as they are called to be leaders of parishes, to be school chaplains, to teach, to be pastoral and to administer the sacraments (e.g. Baptism, Holy Matrimony). It is a privilege for priests to be able to journey with people through all the different phases of their lives.
Bishops – Bishops are the Church elders who oversee the many parishes in each diocese. They are pastors for both clergy and lay people. Bishops are people who have been Deacons and Priests and are then raised up to become leaders for the wider Church. They administer the sacraments of Confirmation, Receive new Anglicans into the Church and can ordain new Deacons and Priests.
