Transforming Church. Together is a process to discern and develop the next five year vision and strategy for the Diocese of Bristol, and was started in January 2021. It has moved on considerably following the almost unanimous vote in favour at the Diocesan Synod in 2022.

We want to understand what we do well, what we can change for the better and create a positive way forward together. Please join us in the following prayer, as we discern the new vision and set of priorities for the coming years:
God of the Way, you call us to leave familiar places and to set out on new paths.
Enlarge our vision of your work in the communities we serve, speak to us through the people we encounter, and open our hearts to your love.
Give us courage and boldness to engage together in this time of prayer and discernment; and by your Holy, life-giving and creative Spirit, renew your church in prayer and service, and in sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray. Amen.
