Faithfulness in Ministry 2020

Frequently Asked Questions

Faithfulness in Ministry is the new name for the same conference.  It has been re-named to avoid confusion with the Diocesan Code of Conduct document which is also called Faithfulness in Service.

Think of Faithfulness in Ministry as three-yearly in-service training. As we seek to persevere in ministry, this is a once-every-three-year opportunity to be encouraged and equipped in our many and varied roles as authorised/licensed ministers in the Diocese.

No. That only happened once (in 2014). FiM is unrelated to your Safe Ministry Training and you should seek to keep that updated through normal channels in accordance with the conditions of your licence or authority.
See for details

The Archbishop requires all licensed clergy/authorised lay ministers in the Diocese to attend FiM.

Due to the conference moving online with the added flexibility that brings, it is expected that all required attendees will be able to attend.

If you cannot attend due to health concerns or similar, please submit an apology.
