New Deanery Plan

It was over five years ago that in our last Deanery Plan that we determined in a very explicit and intentional way to place discipleship – making and growing Christians with a holistic and wholehearted vision of their life in Christ – at the centre of our journey together. The impact of this on our unity, our mission, our prayer, our vision and our clarity of purpose has been significant and it has been so thrilling to see God at work among us in new and fresh ways.

As part of the diocesan strategy we have been invited to draw up a new plan to take us through the  next few years and we are excited to have published this in the last month.
