Focus Area 1 – making a bigger difference in the world and serving the poor

As part of the Common Vision process, we are also exploring six areas of focus for the whole diocese. The interview with the diocesan social responsibility advisor was recorded at the area deans meeting in January 2018.

This group is looking carefully at three common areas of concern: at access to housing across the diocese; at tackling climate change and at putting fresh energy into community engagement.

Bishop Steven introduces the six focus areas

Over a hundred people from across the diocese came together on Saturday 20th January to reflect on progress so far in our common vision process. We gathered as lay chairs, area deans, members of Bishop’s Council and others who had shared in our Common Vision conference in May.
