Bishop Richard’s Consultation – Towards the Year 2030

In the autumn of 2017 Bishop Richard initiated a consultation programme throughout the Arundel & Brighton
diocese. He set five questions concerning the way forward for the church over the next 12 years when
congregations might have grown or remained constant while the number of clergy decreased. Several
parishioners in our deanery as well as throughout the Arundel & Brighton diocese responded by giving careful
consideration to the questions and supplying honest, forthright answers, and a team from the parish analysed
our responses. To see our parish responses as presented in the 2018 AGM please click on the link below:
