Diocese of Manchester mission...
Bishop David is leading a conversation across the diocese on how the Church can better make its message of God’s love heard. Recognising that the modern world is a noisy place in which it can be difficult to get noticed, he is challenging his Church to become ‘Church for a different world’.
The vision of the Diocese of Manchester is to be a worshipping, growing and transforming Christian presence at the heart of every community. Its core message of faith, hope and love is as relevant today as it’s ever been. But Bishop David asks the question: “How do we need to change to make the Church of today be the Church of tomorrow?”
Bishop David has taken his message to a series of roadshows across the diocese to get the conversation started.
A copy of the Pocket Guide is available for every church member. It outlines the diocesan vision and the opportunities to become Church for a different world.
Copies were given out at the roadshows and additional copies can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or downloading an electronic copy below.
