Mission and Ministry

The Mission and Ministry team encourage mission and ministry across our communities and parishes to be locally led and centrally supported, in line with the Diocesan priorities for growth. This includes fostering a culture of vocation (lay and ordained), investing in ministerial formation, supporting a genuine localised strategy for mission (including discipleship and social justice), and developing the potential of our digital engagement.  

The team seeks to support, resource, and enable clergy and laity to flourish in their discipleship, ministry, and mission.
