MAP for small churches in groups/ benefices

We are unusual in Hereford Diocese in the Church of England for having so many small churches and parishes in large, multi-parishgroupings. This presents particular challenges and opportunities for Mission Action Planning.

Since 2012 we have been encouraging local Mission Action Planning and that has taken many forms across the diocese, using the Five Marks of Mission.

Now, from 2016 onwards, through the Follow! consultations we have been exploring the benefits of all of us “Setting our compasses together” and MAPping using our Diocesan Shared Priorities and a common MAPping template across the diocese.
