Benefice and deanery snapshots 2015

2015 "Snapshots"

The first cycle of Mission Action Planning in Hereford Diocese ran from 2011 - 2015.

We’ve been helping parishes, benefices and deaneries record a "snapshot" of their mission action in 2015 and their mission and finance statistics for 2015.

In order to:

* help us all see and celebrate where God is at work... see and celebrate what is going well… see and celebrate where we there is growth

* give thanks to God...

* learn together about what is working

* see new opportunities and possibilities...

The snapshots will also help us look back at 2015 and see where we are making progress in the coming years.

The main theme behind the snapshots is encouragement - looking for signs of God at work around, through, among, in us.

The snapshot process is based on an "Appreciative Inquiry approach" - looking for where there is life and encouragement that can be nurtured and grown.

When will copies of the combined snapshots be available?

Snapshots of the 2015 statistics will be available by deanery from the Archdeaconry Mission and Pastoral Committee meetings on 9 and 10 November 2016. All benefices will be asked to check their snapshots so that we are all sure that we have an accurate picture of 2015. Contact Caroline Pascoe for more info.
