The Diocese have embarked on a new fundraising initiative entitled Closer to Christ.
This exciting initiative will build upon the mission of our Diocese, enabling us to continue our journey to become ever more outward facing and evangelistic, while supporting our local parishes, who are the backbone of our Church.
The campaign will take place over the next two years, with every parish playing their collective part in raising £13.5 million. This funding will be absolutely vital in supporting two key priority areas:
Clergy, through all stages of ministry
Reviving and Enabling our local parish communities
The Closer to Christ Campaign provides an occasion not only to meet some of the urgent needs of the present but to leave a lasting impact for generations still to come.
We firmly believe that this will lay the foundations for strategic growth in the future and in so doing, help us to realise our mission of ‘Bringing People Closer to Jesus Christ through His Church’.
We look forward to keeping you up to date with the impact of your support.
