Initial Ministerial Education for curates

In the first three years of ordained ministry, curates are involved in a programme of Initial Ministerial Education (IME). In some dioceses this is known as IME 4-7.  

The programme consists of ministry training days spread throughout the year. Curates in their deacon year generally meet separately from those in years two and three of the programme, but there are events during the year that all curates attend. 

For more information about IME2, please contact the Revd David McCormick, our Initial Ministerial Education Phase 2 (IME2) Officer on or on 07495 315 395.
