Mission in South Wales
Thursday 10th February, St Catherine’s, Pontypridd, CF37 2UF. 09.30am - 4pm
The move from a parish structure to a Ministry Area structure is not in essence intended just to be about the consolidation of resources but is rather about providing ourselves with the right platform for Christian mission and ministry in a new cultural context. The diocesan Vision offers bold aspirations: this CMD day maps out the proposed strategies and projects for renewed mission and ministry in the diocese in pursuit of those aspirations. We will look at plans and ideas for church revitalization, church planting, and the ways in which mission and growth can be made more possible by the Ministry Area structure.
- All CMD days begin with refreshments at 9:30am and will finish by 4pm.
- All stipendiary clergy are expected to attend as a matter of professional priority. It is hoped that all self-supporting clergy and Readers/LLMs will feel welcome to attend if possible.
- Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
