Jones Mutemwakwenda : God's Calling
My name is Jones Mutemwakwenda. I am married to Gladys with four children.
I am the Priest In Charge of All Hallows Easton an Anglo Catholic Church in the heart of Bristol. We are a welcoming, all aged community drawn from the parish, the Diocese and beyond. Our worship and faith keeps the celebration of Eucharist ( Holy Communion ) at the centre of what we do. We also seek to provide a welcoming place where God can be worshipped in an atmosphere which helps people to pray.
God calls people to ordination in different ways. My call to Priesthood came in the form of a feeling. I started having this feeling to serve God as an ordained person in my early twenties. The feeling became stronger when I got more involved in the activities of the church. I just felt inspired by what the church was doing for the people in the Parish and beyond.
I have always enjoyed doing God’s work as an ordained Priest. I would encourage you thinking of ordination to come forward and serve God as an ordained person. Pray about how you think God is calling you. If you feel strongly that God is calling you, accept His call.
