Vocations Group

One of the Dean's roles in King's is to encourage and foster vocations to the Church of England priesthood as well as helping people to discover what God is calling them to do. 

King's College London has a long and proud tradition of preparing people to serve God in Christian ministry, and in other forms, and we hope to encourage this through the Vocations Group.

The group is for all who are exploring the possibility of, or considering a call to, Christian service, whether ordained or lay, short-term or long-term, home or abroad, Anglican or otherwise.

The Dean is happy to see, in person or virtually, any member of King's College London for individual conversation about their vocation: please email the Dean's Office to make an appointment.

Vocations Group meetings

Meetings are usually held in each of the Autumn and Spring terms. The Vocations Group guest speaker usually preaches at the College Eucharist in the Chapel at 1.10pm on the day of the meeting. A (free!) light lunch is provided in the Chaplaincy room (K2.34) between the service and the Vocations Group meeting.
