Ryan Finnegan 25/11/14 Flyer  Godly Play – 3 Day Training Course – April 2015

Godly Play is a way of Christian nurture and spiritual accompaniment.

The method is highly regarded by Ofsted and SIAMS inspectors.

There is the opportunity to attend a 3 day Core training in Godly Play from 20 till 23 April at Coughton Lodge in Warwickshire. More information can be found on the attached flyer or by going to their website by using the link below.


Graeme Pringle 24/11/14 Pres. Address  Presidential Address at Diocesan Synod – 22 Nov

Diocesan Synod met on Saturday 22 November 2014. Bishop Christopher introduced his Presidential Address by saying:

“In my address to the June Synod I attempted to give a brief review of where we are as a Diocese in terms of our strategic development, and to set that within the context of the life of the Church of England as a whole. I am not going to try anything as systematic as that today but I thought it worth giving an update on some developments in the diocese and, again, to set them in the context of the life of the Church of England as a whole.”

To read Bishop Christopher’s address, please see the attached document.
