If you have been inspired by Guy Willis’s account of the recent vocations conference you will want to take note that on Saturday 3 December the Rt Revd Martin Warner will be leading a vocations day at Christ the King Gordon Square. If you have been thinking about vocation recently or for some time, this will be an excellent opportunity for advice, encouragement and reflection. For more information see
