Ministries, outreach and engagement

As we seek to live out our Called Together vision, there are a number of pioneering ministry opportunities, initiatives and campaigns that we are committed to supporting.

On this page, we signpost to the many different ministries and initiatives supported in the Diocese that church leaders may wish to engage with. Browse the sections below to find out more about them.

Elsewhere on the website, we also have dedicated sections on:

  • Community Engagement - practical ideas and support to extend your outreach into the wider community.
  • Faith in Action - be inspired by stories and personal testimonies of outreach and ministry in the Diocese.
  • Parish spirituality - opportunities and courses to help develop the spiritual lives of your parish teams and wider congregation.
