A momentous year

The Platinum Jubilee, a record-breaking heatwave, the death of Queen Elizabeth II, political upheaval, the cost-of-living crisis and the Coronation of King Charles have all been moments of additional load on our parish churches, chaplaincies and schools.

The annual review highlights some of the achievements of our Church House and area office staff, committees, and councils during that time. Togehter, we are working together for the sake of God’s world.

We have offered warm spaces, debt advice and food banks, comfort and consolation. We’ve brought communities together to celebrate and to reflect. It has meant a great deal of additional work for everyone in every place. We’ve been reminded once again of the centrality of the Church to the life of our communities.

– Bishop Steven and Canon Mark Humphriss
