This is the place to come for lay and ordained church leaders who are seeking to chart a course to a better future as the pandemic restrictions are eased.
"The God of heaven will make us prosper, and we his servants will arise and build..." Neh 2.20 NRSV
In recent weeks Bishop Christopher and Archdeacon Barry have spoken about the journey our churches are embarking on as they seek to find their way in the changing contexts of our parishes. At a presentation to the Bishop's Council on the 17th April, Barry outlined three phases; Return, Rebuild and Renewal. He remarked:
"The God of mission calls each of us as members of His church to be ambassadors of Christ, and be a part of the re-building of our nation, working together to be good news to the poor and renewing and re-imagining our church communities".
Recognising that at each phase, the challenges and opportunities will be different, we have created these pages to resource church leaders with tools, frameworks, inspirational talks and ideas for missional engagement. Don't be overwhelmed by the number of resources, just access what you need. We will add to these pages regularly and signpost you to them from time to time. Let us know if you have come across any helpful resources you would like us to include.
