If you feel called to be a pastor but are having difficulty finding a position in a church – maybe you need to move to England! The Church of England is facing an ageing clergy crisis as retirements exceed ordinations. One in four clergy in the Church of England is aged over 60 and just 13 per cent are under 40. The ministry statistics show a potential future crisis for the Church. Although numbers being ordained have increased in the last four years, they are still too low to replace the large numbers of retiring baby-boomer clergy.
