'Join the Conversation'

We are all aware of how much life has changed over the past year or so, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.   Our Benefice ‘Stepping Out’ group feel that it is now time to address some questions and issues that might help to define what a ‘new normal’ might look like.

At the same time the Diocese of York, under the leadership of our new Archbishop, has begun to re-shape the Diocesan Vision under the title, ‘Living Christ’s Story’.

During July both of our Parochial Church Councils will be asked to provide responses to nine questions posed by the Diocese.

We are trying to align both of these initiatives and are asking for your help.

Over the next two weeks or so, (commencing Sunday 6th June & Sunday 13th June) could you take time to look at the areas mentioned below and think of responses that could be helpful and constructive as we explore a way forward for our Benefice and Diocesan Visions?

Your responses do not have to be in great detail - we would value your thoughts and views on the questions which you feel confident in addressing.

From the 21st June we are hoping to offer different venues (such as parishioner’s gardens, or around the church buildings) where a small number of people can gather safely in a socially-distanced and Covid-secure way to have a conversation about these issues.  

Your responses will be valued by the Stepping Out Group and the Parochial Church Councils.

Information about venues and times will be given nearer the time.

If you would like to join such a conversation please contact The Rector
