Vision and Mission

We will transform society through the gospel of Jesus Christ by building healthy mission-shaped faith communities

As a diocese we believe we are part of God’s people called in the words of the Anglican Communion to:
• To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God
• To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
• To respond to human need by loving service
• To seek to transform the unjust structures of our society, to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation
• To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth

As a diocese we are committed as a Church at mission:
• To praise God
• To grow the Church
• To strengthen our ministry of the laity and clergy
• To engage with and serve our local communities
• To build our resources to extend our mission and ministry

We are inspired by the example of Christ:
The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few, pray therefore for the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers – Matthew 9: 37-38
