MAP training and events
MAP workshops, support and events
Special Diocesan Follow! Inspire! events in November 2016 to support your parish, benefice or deanery with all aspects of your MAPping grouped under the Diocesan Shared Priorities.
RSVP! It really helps with planning and catering to have an idea of how many are coming – but you are also very welcome just to turn up on the night – be green, bring a car full!
Shared Mission Priorities
Our shared priorities are shared not only across Hereford diocese but with the wider Church of England:
SP1 Growing Christian disciples of all ages and backgrounds - spiritually and numerically
SP2 Serving the common good – transforming lives and communities
Ministry for Mission
SP3 Reimagining, developing, and sharing ministry for mission in the 21st century
Resources for Mission:
Shared commitment to: Focusing and growing our resources for mission – staff, time, money etc
MAP workshops and training
You may find that the resources elsewhere on these pages give you what you need to help you get MAPping. But sometimes some support and an introductory or training workshop can help you get started.
We run a range of MAP workshops and training events including the following:
PCC or joint PCC evenings or mornings; Parish Away Days; Rural Deans and Lay Co Chairs; Deanery Synods; Bishop's Staff and Council; Chapters; Mission and Pastoral Committees; Diocesan Boards and Committees
If you would like to request a workshop, please contact Caroline Pascoe (Parish Development Officer), on 01584 871086 (Monday – Thursday mornings 9.30 – 12.30pm).
A network of MAP support for parishes, benefices and deaneries
It often helps to have someone from outside your parish/benefice/deanery to offer ideas, advice and encouragement as you think about or start MAPping.
We have a network of people across the diocese with experience of MAP there to help.
Contact Caroline Pascoe on 01584 871086 to talk about your plans and needs and we will work with you or put someone in touch with you locally.
