Same Church. Different World.

Same Church. Different World.

Manchester Diocese is taking to the road this year with a series of roadshow events in each archdeaconry. Your archdeacon, Bishop David and diocesan officers will be coming to a place near you to meet with you, get to know you better and share how we can resource your parish. Each event is also an opportunity to engage in discussion about how the Church needs to adapt and change to remain relevant and make the most of its opportunities to grow in the modern world.
