Deanery Mission Planning

Our diocesan strategy aims to equip all God’s people in our churches to live and tell the story of Jesus. We want to be as intentional as possible in shaping our collective energy to this aim, and deaneries have a key part to play in this. Deanery leaders have a key role in taking a strategic overview of mission and ministry and enabling change and development within the deanery. Listening to God, each other and our wider communities needs to be continually part of developing any plans.

For help with deanery planning, please contact your Deanery and Parish Development Advisers who will be happy to help. Where there is more than one person listed it is because the staff listed are part time, not full time.
