Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is the general term for the ministry of those supporting others in their relationships with God. Everyone is encouraged to make use of this ministry, but licensed ministers are especially recommended to find a spiritual director as many find this helps them keep their personal relationship with God fresh while giving out so much to others.

Revd Canon John Austen, Bishop’s Adviser for Spirituality, has a list of ecumenical directors, lay and ordained, for the Diocese and can help and advise in finding one. The National Retreat Association has a lot of information about the ministry and can also help you find a director.
