The third edition of Bishop Richard’s Pastoral Plan entitled “The Word Who is Life: The Call to Mission” was published on 2nd January. As society becomes more secular our parishes must be ever-clearer beacons of light guiding people to Christ. The new plan highlights how our community of faith can embrace this important time of renewal, forging diocesan parishes into communities of saints and strong, lively, and welcoming schools of discipleship. This edition of the plan seeks to lay out some of the practicalities of the way forward for the diocese.
The Pastoral Plan is available on the diocesan website at www.abdiocese.org.uk/diocese/pastoralplan, with hard copies available to read in each parish. Bishop Richard will also be hosting a Pastoral Plan Webinar for people across our diocesan community at on Wednesday 10th January at 7.30pm.
