The 2015 Consultation is a key document driving the direction of the Diocese of Hereford
"The Working Party that produced this report was asked by the Bishop's Council to consider the Diocese's needs and priorities in mission and ministry for 2015 and beyond.
We soon realised that there are enormous implications for all of us as a diocese, whether lay or ordained, if what we began to see as the future is right. There will be a very particular impact on the role of our parochial clergy.
We have already shared the thinking with a wide cross-section of clergy and lay people - we listened carefully to their thoughts and concerns. Their input has fed our discernment of the issues we will be facing together in the coming years.
The Bishop's Council has now received this report and given it formal approval. It is time to share our concerns, our hopes and our vision much more widely.
We set that vision in the context of Jesus feeding the five thousand."
