09/10/15   Healthy Churches Mentor appointed
We are pleased to announce that Rev Steve Hood has been appointed to work on the team of Rev Cn Martin Saxby, Healthy Churches Development Mentor. Steve will work with Lynn Chetcuti and the volunteer mentors whose role is to help parishes develop the 8 Essential Quality Characteristics of healthy churches. This is part of the Diocese’s Core Strategy to promote the qualitative growth of all our churches, to create an environment for natural church growth.
Steve said “The more I see the 8 Essential Qualities process, the more I’m convinced by its value as a tool God can use. I’m really looking forward to helping more churches use it to grow.”
