Mission

Jesus said to those who followed him 'As the Father has sent me, so do I send you.'   Mission is about being sent by Jesus to carry forward the work that he began in all aspects of the life of people in society.

These pages focus on how that calling is carried out in the Diocese of Norwich in different ways especially through the Committed to Growth initiative.

Committed to Growth

The Diocese of Norwich is Committed to Growth in discipleship, service and numbers. The Bishop of Norwich writes: "I invite everyone to share in our Diocesan commitment to growth". In practice this means:

  • our growth as disciples of Jesus Christ
  • growth in the number of people worshipping God and learning to be Christ's disciples (through evangelism)
  • our growth in service to God and our neighbours

This is the mission to which we believe God is calling our Diocese.
