For church and youth leaders

We need to hear the views and opinions of as many people in the Church locally as possible in order to make sure we find the right person for the role of Bishop of Rochester.

As a church leader and role holder in the Diocese, your opinion matters. You also have a vital role in helping encourage others to get involved and take part.

Children and Young People activities 

We are really interested in what the children and young people of our Diocese think our new Bishop should care about. 

We've created some activities that could be used with a group of children or young people, either in person or online as part of a facilitated discussion.

If you are in a school, consider how the group consulted might be as representative as possible of your school community.
