Our Curates' programme supports the initial years of leadership in ordained ministry.

Each curate is required by the bishop to take part in this programme of learning in their first four years of post-ordination ministry. The content is designed specifically for this important stage of ministry, with the chance to share experience together.

Curate training is overseen by the Right Reverend Ruth Worsley, Bishop of Taunton, and the Training Team Leader.

If you are of UKME (UK Minority Ethnic) heritage you may also like to connect with our UKME Champion, Revd Narinder Tegally. The Diocese of Bath and Wells seeks to provide encouragement and support to all those who want to explore lay and ordained vocation but who may feel they have not been well represented in the Church of England in the past. This includes, amongst others, those of United Kingdom Minority Ethnic (UKME)/Global Majority Heritage (GMH).
