Diocese of Manchester

We've used sermons, pulpits and volunteers. Is it time to use our imagination?
To be vibrant and alive in the 21st century, the Church has to start reaching people in new ways. Can we be more flexible in our approach and consider how we can change a little ourselves?

Some of our parishes have already begun to consider how they can develop their lay leaders, build networks to share resources, and take a long, hard look at their buildings. In today’s busy world, others are doing Messy Church and mid-week services, enabling them to engage with a whole new audience. 

How else can we imaginatively deliver Church?
