Diocesan Priorities

The Diocese of Newcastle is committed to flourishing churches and communities. We have developed three priorities for our Next Steps for growing church bringing hope:

· Bringing Good News: ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor.’ (Luke 4.18)

· Growing in Christ: ‘As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith…’ (Colossians 2.6-7)

· Living Faith Fully: ‘I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.’ (John 10.10)

We have developed a vision for growing church bringing hope as part of a response to the challenges faced by the church in our rural, urban and suburban settings. From the following three values:

· Open to God’s transforming love

· Generous with God’s transforming gifts

· Engaged in God’s transforming work in the world
