News from the Diocesan Conversation about our new strategic framework

The Diocese of Rochester is engaged in Our Conversation; Our Future to help us develop a new strategic framework. These conversations will help Bishop James and his team discern God's will for the Diocese. 

Diocesan Synod was given a flavour of the activities and responses to Our Conversation; Our Future at their meeting on Saturday 18 March.

Members from Penge, Twydall, Tonbridge and Bexley shared their experiences of meetings, lent courses, house group sessions, worship and preaching and more.

We want to ensure everyone has an opportunity to speak and be heard.

You can respond to Our Conversation; Our Future through the website, by email, by writing to us, or more creatively.

We'd like responses by Easter please, so we can begin the discernment process.

Our Conversation; Our Future is built on a foundation of prayer.

Please continue to remember these conversations, and all who are taking part in them, in your prayers.

The prayer (left) written for this can be found on the website and in the toolkit.

Printed copies of the Place In the Crowd course and course leaders books are available to order online or from the Diocesan Office.

If you use Twitter, search for #PlaceInTheCrowd to join the conversation, see how others are using the course materials, and other resources you might consider. 

Hear how one church discussed Our Conversation; Our Future during their evening service with young people.
