The Probationers' Group meets every two months for mutual support and instruction. In the last year, subjects for discussion have included time spent looking at accountability and the ministerial code of conduct, reflections upon ordination, and ‘CPD’, and each probationer has presented in open session content relating to their Orientation (1st year) or Gospel in Context (2nd year) projects.
During 2018-19 we had two Year 2 Probationers and one Year 1 Probationer, each undertaking their academic studies including their Orientation and Gospel in Context projects through the Queen's Foundation in Birmingham.
In February of this year all were present at the annual regional retreat for Probationers, which was held at Launde Abbey in Leicestershire, when the theme was ‘Ancient and Living Wells - Drawing on the Wells of the Wesleyan Quadrilateral’.
