Welcome to the London District of the Methodist Church

Continuing Development in Ministry (CDIM)

You are here


The CDIM programme ensures that presbyters and deacons have the encouragement and support they need to continue in study, training and professional development throughout their ministry. This aim is carried out in several ways:

1.     Ministerial Development Review (MDR)

2.     Rolling programme of academic and professional courses for ministers

3.     Ministers New to London training days- TBC

4.     Ecumenical training opportunities

If you are a presbyter or deacon in Full Connexion thinking of continuing your development in ministry and need financial support, contact District CDIM secretary, Revd Jonathan Mead to find out what financial help is available to you from the District or Connexion and your Circuit.

Are you seeking funding for a postgraduate research or taught degree? Funding applications are received each year with a deadline in late May. Download an application here

For more information on any of these areas, contact Revd Jonathan Mead.
