You will report to and consult with the Growing Faith for Generations Steering Board and be a member of the Diocesan leadership team.
This is a long-term project to realise the diocese’s priority goal of developing an energetic and evolving church among the coming generations. It is being done in partnership with schools, churches of many denominations, the Scripture Union Ministries Trust and private sponsors. Funding is currently secured for 3 years including a grant from the Church of England Strategic Development Fund.
