Church planting & revitalisation
The Diocese has been awarded £1.98m by the national Church of England towards a new programme to form new churches and revitalise existing ones.
Beginning in September 2019, the project aims to grow over five years, creating 10 new or revitalised churches across Norfolk and Waveney. Teams of church and worship leaders, sports ministers and others will be appointed to areas where research shows there are local needs the church can help meet and communities that can be better supported with additional resources. The programme seeks to reach both rural and urban areas, engaging with young people and families by focusing on areas of population around secondary school catchment areas.
Our e-newsletter contains a snapshot of news, events and resources for those involved or interested in planting and revitalising churches. It’s free to sign up and to make sure you don’t miss the latest information.
