Ordinations for all The requirements for ordination candidates are that they have been baptised and confirmed and have the required competency to perform the duties of a deacon or priest as a celebrant. We are inclusive and affirming of the LGBTQ community. We affirm ordination for all genders and sexual orientations.
Respect for life We believe that persons wishing to follow a spiritual path should practice a clean lifestyle and have an inherent respect for life. How exactly each individual interprets this, is their own responsibility.

Membership Membership of the order does not limit anyone’s freedom. This also means that our members are free to take part in whatever organisations they deem fit, including participation in services of other churches and religious traditions.
Ordinations are ordinarily conferred on fixed festival days in the church calendar (this is a guide and not set in stone):
