Projects and Events:

 

HOPE 2014

The Diocese is participating in HOPE 2014 a year of Mission.

HOPE is a catalyst bringing churches together to transform communities. Momentum is building towards a year of mission in 2014 – the whole church, reaching the whole nation, for a whole year. The mix of denominations, churches, ages and cultures – and the number of ministries involved -- is unprecedented.

HOPE doesn’t tell churches what to do. It works together with denominations and ministries. It provides free resources and ideas through their website and email updates.

 

HOPE 2014

Every church was given £100 to help kick start a community initiative to celebrate HOPE 2014.

Back to Church Sunday logo

 

Back to Church Sunday is a special Sunday to invite people (back) to church. There are various reasons why people stop going to church when once it played an important part of their lives. Back to Church Sunday offers quality resources to local churches so people in your church can give an especially warm welcome on this special Sunday of the year. Register your church and visit the Back to Church website for more information and resources.

Look who came back to church - a booklet of just some of the stories of people who came back to church in this diocese.
