Get Involved

Our Conversation; Our Future asks just three questions:

  • What may the Holy Spirit be saying to us about our area?
  • What do we currently spend our energy and resources on?
  • What do we need to change about who we are and what we do?

From now until Easter 2017 we will be asking these questions at as many meetings and forums as we can, seeking to engage as wide and deep as we can with people connected to us.

You are welcome to respond to these questions online here. You can respond on your own, or from a group.

We have produced a Toolkit resource, with ideas to help local churches and small groups explore the questions in more depth, in interesting and sometimes creative ways. It has been designed for you to print and use locally. We hope you find it useful.  Toolkit

Response Sheet A4

A diocesan Lent Course in 2017 will encourage us all to set aside time to listen and respond to the Holy Spirit, to explore the culture around us and find our own role within it.

The course and additional resources will be published in early 2017, and a copy of the course leaders booklet and course booklets will be sent to every parish. We will happily send more on request. The documents below provide an insight into the content and structure of the course, with a course outline of the six week sessions, and the text of the introduction and first session of the leaders booklet. The course has been developed by clergy colleagues from across the diocese, and aims to provide a way to explore the issues of Our Conversation; Our Future in a reflective and spiritual way. As we know many church groups enjoy studying lent courses ecumenically, we have tried to ensure that this material is appropriate for a variety of settings.
