Shaped by God Together - Local Conversations

SbGT 1

Bishop Martyn has asked that each church community have a conversation about three possible model of ministry for the future in our diocese, and to feedback reflections into the larger diocesan conversation and discernment process. The many stories that were gathered at throughout the summer of 2020 gave us some really important insights which have and will continue to feed into this process. The Shaped By God Together process has been focusing future shape of our Ministry, our care for and use of our Church Buildings, and the principles that guide how we raise and best use our diocesan Finance. The local conversations will focus on three potential models for ministry - Minster - Mission Area and Network.

There will be four opportunities for you to contribute to our local conversations and to ensure your voice is heard as we seek God’s will for the way forward for ministry in our diocese. All sessions are open to anyone from any of our churches, and will be facilitated by members of our shared leadership Team, Rev Clive and Rev Fiona will attend sessions but will not be leading them.
