“As we follow Christ in the footsteps of St Chad, we pray that the two million people in our diocese encounter a church that is confident in the gospel, knows and loves its communities, and is excited to find God already at work in the world. We pray for a church that reflects the richness and variety of those communities. We pray for a church that partners with others in seeking the common good, working for justice as a people of hope.”
Our Mission Action Plan uses the three core principles of DISCIPLESHIP, VOCATION and EVANGELISM in aligning our direction of travel with that of our brothers and sisters throughout the diocese.
We offer opportunities to grow as disciples of Jesus through worship, study, pilgrimage, and prayer.
