Being a Curate : Stories of what it's really like Paperback / softback

Edited by Jonathon Ross-McNairn, Sonia Barron


Focuses mainly on stories about being a curate in a variety of different church traditions and contexts, both stipendiary and self-supporting, and is inclusive in terms of age, ethnicity and gender.

The 30 or so people contributing are real and grounded, and offer honest reflections on being a curate and curacies in the Church of England, through anecdotes, humour, practical advice and theology.

As well as looking at training, ordination and first steps in a curacy, Being a Curate looks at what makes a successful curacy; the relationship between the curate and the training incumbent; the transition from curate to incumbent; dealing with thorny issues, and the value of sharing stories.
