Our common vision

We are called to become a more Christ-like Church for the sake of God’s world. The brand-new common vision section of our website has all you need to get started.

Parish planning

Our new Parish Planning Tool supports the mission of your church to become more Christ-like, helping you to see where God is already at work and how you can join in.

Past Cases Review

We need to be certain that all known cases of concern about the behaviour of our clergy or church officers towards children & adults have been dealt with.
