Dio­cese of Here­ford

The Church of England - - NEWS -

Peo­ple across the dio­cese are be­ing in­vited to a se­ries of events to meet the Bish­ops of Here­ford and Lud­low, in a chance to shape the fu­ture of the church.

“Fol­low! Join the con­ver­sa­tion; share the jour­ney”, is the theme for the events tak­ing place in Septem­ber, de­signed to get peo­ple talk­ing.

“There are very many con­ver­sa­tions tak­ing place across the dio­cese al­ready – in lo­cal Church Coun­cils, youth groups, Syn­ods, school gover­nor meet­ings, sup­port min­is­ters meet­ings, clergy chap­ters, lunch clubs and more,” said the Rt Rev Richard Frith, Bishop of Here­ford.

“We need to bring those con­ver­sa­tions to­gether and work out how God is invit­ing us as Chris­tians, as churches, as a dio­cese to­day, to re­spond to his great gen­eros­ity, and to be part of the dif­fer­ence he longs to see in the lives of the com­mu­ni­ties we serve, for the sake of his king­dom on earth as in heaven. That is a big con­ver­sa­tion. It af­fects all that we are and all that we do!”
