Become a Reverse Mentor

We are shaking things up at the Diocese – do you want to get involved by becoming a Reverse Mentor? 

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in helping us to shape our future by working with us on the 'Transforming Church. Together' strategy. We remain committed to being open, inclusive, and having God at the centre - and you all have a role to play. 

Part of our transformation involves us becoming more representative of the people we serve. We do not yet have the diversity of staff needed to ensure that all views are represented at the centre of these projects. Our Reverse Mentors will help to ensure that the leadership of these activities are challenged with a diverse range of views and lived experiences. 

What does it involve? 

Reverse mentors will be paired with Diocesan leaders, to help influence and act as a critical friend during the delivery of the biggest strategy the Diocese of Bristol has ever implemented. 

Can I become a Reverse Mentor?

Anyone can be a Reverse Mentor but we especially welcome participation from those from under-represented groups, and have approached a wide range of people and organisations who may be able to work with us on this journey. 

How to apply?

  1. Email the 'Transforming Church. Together' team at: 
  2. We will send you a simple application form to fill in and return (If you require a different application method - e.g. phone or video - please let us know.)
