Throughout August a small group of people gathered together to discern and develop the key themes and priorities emerging from the vision conversations. These key themes and priorities will form our vision and will be shared with the Diocese via the vision website and newsletter on Monday 12 September.
Everyone is encouraged to prayerfully reflect on the material and then discuss and feedback any thoughts you have with your local clergy. So far the following meetings have been arranged for feedback:
Thursday 15 September, 8pm at the Rock
Wednesday 21 September, 7.30pm at Wickwar Church and Church Room
Forest South Deanery
Thursday 22 September, 7.30pm at St James' Church, Bream
Thursday 22 September, 7.15pm at St George's Church, Tuffley.
Severn Vale Deanery
Wednesday, 28 September, 7.30pm at St Andrew’s, Churchdown
Thursday 22 September, 7-9pm at St Laurence Church in Stroud
Tewkesbury and Winchcombe
Monday 26 September, 7.30pm at St Michael's Bishop's Cleeve
If you are unable to attend your local meeting, please do meet with your local clergy and feedback to them directly.
Between 28-30 September the clergy conference is being held. At this gathering there will be time dedicated to discuss the key themes and priorities, which will include feedback at the deanery meetings above. There will also be discussion around its implementation and the opportunity to refine the priorities that sit under the key themes.
