View our 12-minute video by Archbishop Stephen and others to learn about the background to our refreshed Diocesan Vision, 'Living Christ's Story', how it builds on our journey of recent years and why we need each other's help in consultations to shape its out-working in 2021 and beyond.

Archbishop Stephen introduces 'Living Christ's Story' and how it's developed out of our journey to date as a guide for our next steps as a Diocesan family. Lay and ordained members of our Diocesan Synod, staff team, Archbishop's Council and Diocesan Leadership Team explain how our refreshed vision will be shaped into plans we can implement together.

God our loving Father,
you have called your Church into being in your love and strengthened us for your service.
Guide and inspire us as we seek to re-shape our approach to mission and ministry in our diocese;
that we may be a joyful Church of missionary disciples,
one in heart and mind; for the sake of your kingdom,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
