The discussions which took place during the Vision for Mission meetings in January have been summarised in the three documents below:
A few days ago we published some notes prepared by Michael Hornsby-Smith in preparation for a discussion by a house group of some 40 years standing. The group has now met to discuss its response to the Bishop's 'Vision for Mission' questions and their thoughts are printed below.
Bishop Richard has requested that all parts of the Diocese meet to have a conversation about our mission and our future. He quoted Pope Francis:
"all of us are asked to obey the call to go forth from our own comfort zone in order to reach all the ‘peripheries’ in need of the light of the Gospel" (EG20)
In preparation for this Michael Hornsby-Smith has produced a contribution and kindly allowed it to be published below.
The meetings will be held on
Monday 15th January, 10am at St Pius X Church Hall
Thursday 18th January, 8pm at St Joseph’s Church Hall
