Changes in the Diocese
The Manchester Diocese have a new vision…… “Our diocesan vision is to be a worshipping, growing and transforming Christian presence at the heart of every community. We want to be a Church for a Different World. All our energy, effort and prayer is focused on achieving our vision by 2030.”
As a result some changes have been proposed. These include:
- Consolidating the number of deaneries from 20 to 7 (the Bolton area would become one deanery instead of three as at present).
- Introducing a new full-time Area Dean role, providing leadership for change and development, as well as the capacity to be directly involved at parish level when there are vacancies.
The Diocese want to hear your views on this and as part of their consultation period have offered details and the opportunity for comments to be made. You can read and make your comments using the below link… https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/S9L9563 or by post. The consultation is open until February 2020).
