Parish Refresh 2023-30
We are deeply thankful for all that God has been doing across our diocese over many years, and for the opportunity at this time to be refreshing our diocesan vision and priorities for 2023-30.
As part of this process of discernment, we are inviting every local parish/church to reflect on their experience and learning to date, to consider opportunities and needs, and share their vision and priorities for Growing Disciples. This will help us together to continue to respond effectively to the emerging missional landscape across the diocese.
Please scroll below to see a video outlining what we hope your parish/church might contribute to this process, including completion of this online form.
Please do take time to discuss together as a PCC and leadership team as you complete the form for your parish/church. The deadline for completion is the 30th November 2022.
You can read previous communications from the Bishops about the Vision Refresh here and the the launch of the Parish Refresh and video here.
Please do take time to discuss together as a PCC and leadership team as you complete the form for your parish/church.
In Spring 2023, we will share some of the common themes and priorities that have emerged as we continue to serve and minister together.
Foundational to discerning the vision God has for our diocese is the call to wait on him and our Diocesan Days of Prayer will form part of this prayerful discernment. Further details will follow but please do come along and join in with these at various locations across the diocese starting on Thursday 13th October 2022 and continuing on the second Thursday of the month through until June 2023.
