In the last year the Diocese has seen the formation of the Evangelism Group, which hopes to assist in the implementation of the Governing Body motion on evangelism by:
1.Suggesting ways to train and resource both clergy and laity in evangelism.
2.Providing strategic advice regarding new ordained and lay roles which prioritise evangelism.
3.Championing and resourcing the formation of local nurture groups in ministry areas and parishes.
4.Encouraging opportunities to pray for evangelism across the Diocese, including the Thy Kingdom Come initiative.
One of the commitments to come from that meeting was to launch a campaign around nurture groups to support the Bishop’s vision to see a nurture group in every Ministry Area.
The aim is to provide resources to help Ministry Areas or local groups set up, or develop existing nurture groups.
