From army chaplaincy to nightclub ministry to Bible study in the pub - the Church of England is preparing to show college leavers the depth and breadth of ordained ministry in an attempt to recruit more young people. A new national campaign Call Waiting will be launched at the General Synod this weekend in response to the steadily declining number of under-30s - just 88 out of 595 people in 2007 - recommended for training. The campaign will use a website, posters and magazine to chronicle the journey from the initial sense of calling through to training and ministry, sharing joys, thoughts and worries along the way.
