Vision Statement

We are:

* a welcoming community which reaches out to all
* celebrating Christ's presence
* joyfully living out our Christian calling across distance and diversity
This vision states that as a Diocese, we aim to be a welcoming, missionary, centred on Christ, and each striving to live one's particular vocation.
It is in living out our calling that we praise God, follow Christ, influence society and achieve the goal of eternal life won for us by Christ.
In the parishes we have encouraged people to measure whatever they do against this Diocesan vision.
