Diocese of Manchester

    A nice problem to have!

    There has been an incredible response to Bishop David's request for parishes to submit a Mission Action Plan by the end of November. As the deadline approached the MAPs came flooding in, with over 30 arriving in the last week alone.

    We would like to thank churches for taking the time and effort to submit their MAP. They make fascinating reading, and reflect a huge range of setting, church tradition and resources. 

    Spare a thought for the MAP Officer, Andy Salmon, as he reads and acts on the MAPs. Andy said, "It’s great to see the diocesan commitment to a worshipping growing and transforming Christian presence in the heart of each community translated into so many different plans. It’s really encouraging to read of churches that are prepared to try new things and are reaching out into their communities, sharing the love of God."

    It will take Andy a while to get back to you as he is working through all the plans. If you haven't quite made the deadline, please continue to work on your Mission Action Plan and send to map@manchester.anglican.org
