Anna Laycock 15/07/16  News Story – Acceler8 combats CofE ageing crisis

The release of the Church of England ministry statistics last month showed an ageing crisis amongst CofE clergy, with a quarter of ministers being over 60 and only 13% under 40. For many these statistics are a cause for concern and pose the question; how do we encourage more young people to be involved in ministry? The Diocese of Coventry has been focusing on significantly increasing the number of disciples under 40 for some time and in June 2015 the diocese was awarded £638,000 by the Church Commissioners to set up the Acceler8 project.
