Stages of Shaping for Mission

A target timeline for the Shaping for Mission process:

Phase One – Deanery Reviews

Autumn 2020 – winter 2021

Each deanery will 

- establish a Shaping for Mission team

  • work with a diocesan facilitator
  • carry out a review of the deanery working with the template and information provided
  • consult and communicate with the wider deanery

Bishop Michael introduced Shaping for Mission in this video from October 2020

Phase Two – Deanery Vision Setting Process 

Spring  2021 – summer 2021

-Each deanery will build on the review process to discern a vision for the deanery using the template and information provided

- The vision setting process will focus on areas of strength to build on, areas to stop or change, and areas where new approaches are needed. 

Phase Three – Translating the Vision into Reality

Summer 2021 onwards

  • Bishop’s Staff will work with the visions to develop strategies with each deanery to move towards their vision
  • This will include decisions about resourcing and staffing
