I have been most kindly welcomed and I feel privileged to be in such a unique and particular context. Over the next year my role will evolve, but essentially I will be:
Mapping Church in the World activity within the Diocese, identifying gaps and emerging issues.
Please contact me if you are just thinking about what you or your church might do, if you know what it is you want to do but aren’t sure how or if you feel there are issues that we need to tackle at Diocesan or national levels.
