/ Our vision / Intergenerational Mission /
The Strategic Development money will further our shared priority of spiritual and numerical growth across all age groups over the next five years, funding Intergenerational Missioners to work in six strategic parishes across the diocese for five years.
They will focus in particular on reaching children and young people with each missioner leading the formation of new worshipping communities and nurturing faith among all generations.
Each Intergenerational Missioner will be a member of the parish leadership team and work alongside clergy and parish staff.
The Bishop of Hereford, the Rt Revd Richard Frith said:
“I am thrilled that our bid for Strategic Development Funding has been successful.
“The grant will be invaluable in enabling us to employ six new missioners to work with people who don’t have a connection with church, focusing particularly on young people.
“It is also an encouraging affirmation of our praying, planning and working for spiritual and numerical growth.”
The Intergenerational Missioners will be based in:
- South Wye
- Ross on Wye
- Sutton Hill and Woodside
