Welcoming people to new housing developments – networking and training event

January 18, 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

LIFE: Engagement Living out Christ’s love and hope

Welcoming people to new housing developments

Houses with church at centreThis training and networking event is hosted by Bishop Robert and the LIFE priority group working on the priority “Connecting with new housing developments in innovative ways”. It is particularly suitable for parishes which have new housing developments of up to 300 houses, and it would be appropriate for a group to come from a parish to share in reflection together. At these events we will:

  • Reflect on the role of welcoming people into new communities in living out Christ’s love and hope across this Diocese
  • Celebrate stories from parishes already engaged in welcoming newcomers
  • Hear from the Barnwood Trust about their experience of engaging people in their local communities
  • Find out how to use a new ‘Welcome Pack’ produced by the priority group, to be adapted locally, and how to order copies from College Green
  • Develop plans for the future
