The final session of our Synod was an opportunity to look at emerging outcomes. Bishop Brendan offered his commitment to take seriously and to implement the approved proposals of this Synod, with a timeline and consultative process across the rest of 2016
The Synod vote has given us an overall direction for our diocese and also a clear thrust for each theme thus providing a Vision to guide us in the years ahead. It has also enabled us to prioritise proposals within the theme and devise a strategy for delivering the broad range of actions identified.
In order that we can realise our Vision our overall strategy is to develop capacity or ability to deliver at diocesan and local level.
You will see in each theme that we aim to begin by doing something at diocesan level to increase our ability to move on this theme â€“ this is achieved by training, employing or appointing people to key positions. Then, in turn we aim to similarly develop the ability on the ground to make progress on actions by providing training and resources and ensuring there are people at local level who can deliver actions in this theme.
