The journey of Transforming Church. Together (TCT) began in January 2021 when Bishop Viv invited everyone in the Diocese to join a conversation about our priorities, under God, for the future.
After periods of discussion, listening and discernment we now have a Synod–approved strategy for the diocese for the next five years.
Now’s the time to reflect on what this will mean for us in our parishes and benefices before the start of the strategy period in early 2023.
Please pray. None of our plans can become real without God’s will and the work of the Holy Spirit. The Bishop’s Council hope that all clergy and parishes will be able to build intentional times and opportunities for prayer into their deliberations on our future.
We remain committed to the process being open, inclusive, and having God at the centre; and you all have a role to play. We encourage you to get involved and contribute your thoughts and ideas, at all stages.
Please share the vison, purpose, values and four outcomes with your teams, congregations, friends, and families.
