Focus area 6 – celebrating and blessing Milton Keynes

As part of the Common Vision process we are also exploring six areas of focus for the whole diocese. This interview with the Archdeacon of Buckingham looks at progress so far. The interview was recorded at the area deans meeting in January 2018.

Summary:
A new prayer initiative has begun in Milton Keynes. There has been a lot of deep listening. There is a desire to appreciate all that is good but also to think boldly and creatively about ways forward. This group wants to emphasise that it is “not about the money”. They will not be seeking a disproportionate allocation of diocesan resource to Milton Keynes. They have identified six critical ways forward for mission in the city.
