Cohorts of clergy and their parishes meet over a period of 12 – 18 months to discern God’s plans for their future ministry and mission. Each cohort meets with the AMD Team to identify their learning and development needs and a customised programme of colleges (currently online, but usually residential at Epiphany House) and other events and meetings is created.

The Accompanied Ministry Development team also includes a number of Transitions Advisers who work with parishes and benefices in transition as they seek a vision for the future of their churches and develop their parish profiles prior to advertising for a new clergyperson where appropriate.
