Vision and Priorities
We see the ministry of the whole of the Diocese of Norwich, across Norfolk and Waveney, as being about how we live our life together, for the flourishing of every person in every place. Transformed by Christ: prayerful, pastoral and prophetic.
Our Life Together
Jesus said “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10.10). We see this ministry of the whole diocese as being about how we live our life together for the flourishing of every person in every place. Any vision should help the local church to flourish and grow in confidence that we are loved by God.
Jesus also said, “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6.21). The heart of our mission is about being open to, and enabling others to discover, a life transformed by Christ. We join in Christ’s mission, conscious of the five marks of mission of the Anglican Communion, through responding to God and the world
Being open to all of this will enable God in Jesus to accomplish far more than all we can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3.20). If we allow the Holy Spirit to breathe God’s divine life into our human plans, much more will be made of them, for God can bring abundance from scarcity.
We are called to be faithful, as God is always faithful to us. By prayerfully placing the life of the diocese where our sails can best catch the wind of the Holy Spirit, God will take us where God wills.
