Social Responsibility Reaching out

The Social Responsibility Team are hosting “Reaching Out” Session across the diocese.

This event is aimed at parishes to share and celebrate the work they do to engage and support their local communities and highlight issues they are passionate about in the wider world.

The format of the event will be mainly informal with a “speed dating” approach to encourage networking and sharing of ideas and inspiration. There will be space for two people from your parish to come to this event and an opportunity for you to demonstrate your work on a stand or table top presentation.

Staff members not only from the Social Responsibility department but from the wider Church House team will be present to run small “surgeries” to answer questions, explore ideas and discuss activities.

We would really like to encourage attendance of those who are already engaged positively in activities and partnerships that make a real difference to communities (local, national or international) and can demonstrate a practical response to sharing God’s love. If however you are starting to think about this aspect of Mission or find it challenging we would warmly welcome your attendance just to chat and gain inspiration.

The event is being held from late afternoon to early evening including a light tea to ensure those who work or have family commitments will be able to attend at some point during the session.

This is a new venture but we hope it will be successful. We truly believe the greatest resource is learning from and sharing with others especially as there are so many fantastic things going on in our parishes it is missed opportunity if people don’t get a chance to talk to each other!
