Coventry Diocese is a diverse array of parishes and organisational structures. In seeking to implement the 8EQs across the whole diocese a diverse approach is necessary. A primary process has been developed to serve the needs of most parishes. To discuss what is appropriate for your situation please contact Clive Hicks.
The primary process recommends an approximately annual cycle with the support of a mentor. The full cycle involves a congregational survey, interpretation of results, the agreeing of a few brief action points, implementation and review. Entering into the cycle is usually preceded by a series of meetings with a mentor of the incumbent, the PCC, the congregation and the church leadership to ensure the vision for this process is shared and owned before embarking on it.
