Taking A New Look At Our Diocese

As Bishop Robert chaired the October meeting of Bishop’s Council in London, clergy and lay delegates heard about plans to help the Diocese deal with growth and to understand the sociological and economic problems of migrants and other residents in Europe so we can offer good Christian assistance and relief.

The two day event also includes a “blue sky thinking” series of sessions where aims and objectives for mission and ministry can be discussed and firmed up.

Council members were also encouraged to hear developments in Safeguarding including the impending launch of a new computer based training package which is to be introduced at local church level so everyone who need basic training can complete the course in their own local setting.
