About Forward Together in Hope




As part of this journey of renewal we will explore together what makes for a flourishing and viable worshipping community. Each of the current parishes in the diocese will be asked to consider carefully and prayerfully the ten areas shown below.


The exploration will involve clergy and people working closely together at every stage. They will produce a detailed assessment under each of these headings along with recommendations about the way forward.

  • Active involvement of people
  • Education and continuing formation
  • Geographic distance
  • Leadership
  • Finances
  • Worship and spiritual life
  • Christian faithful
  • Young people
  • Facilities
  • Outreach
