Growing the Church
Posted by Ros Clarke, 10 Mar 2021
Ros Clarke introduces a new research project from Church Society.
Many dioceses in the Church of England are currently in the process of considering changes to their clergy deployment, and many deaneries are being asked to make recommendations for this process.
In order to help these recommendations and changes be most effective in growing the church, Church Society are running a survey to gather evidence about existing strategies and their effects.
The survey looks at two different strategies: COMBINED PARISHES (multi-parish benefices, groups and teams) and PROJECTS which are detached from the ministry of an individual church.
We plan to make the results of this survey freely available to dioceses and deaneries, and will also publish it on the website here. We hope that it will be a useful resource as decisions are made about future ministry.
In order to make the analysis as useful as possible, we want to gather data as widely as we can, so please do share the link freely: https://tinyurl.com/7e8pf4ab
