Mission Action Planning


Mission Action Planning was launched in 2008 as a Diocesan-wide initiative. Every parish in the Diocese was asked to prepare its own Mission Action Plan (MAP). A summary of each of the MAPs produced by the parishes can be found in the Mission Action Planning section of the website.

Fresh Expressions

A Fresh Expression is different way of 'being church' for our changing culture, and often appeals to those who are not yet part of any church. You can learn more about Fresh Expressions, how to get involved and see the many examples already in our Diocese in the Fresh Expression section of this website.

Evangelism

Christian evangelism is the preaching of the Christian Gospel – sharing our faith with others. Here you will find many practical ideas and courses to enable you to share your Christian faith in a variety of ways.
