These open conversations are a chance for your voice to be heard. Nine different sessions are planned in different venues throughout the Diocese – the content will be exactly the same in each one, please come to whichever is most convenient for you.

“I hope and pray that these open conversations will be a real chance for a wide range of people to engage in the issues currently affecting our church, so that together we can work out ways to move forward towards our Kingdom vision and enable God’s Church in Worcestershire and Dudley to thrive.” Bishop John

Open conversation for Young People

On Saturday 8 February, 1.30 - 3pm, we are inviting children and young people from across the diocese to join a special Open Conversation run by Children's Officer Emma Pettifer and Youth Officer, Simon Hill. 

The content will be essentially the same as other conversations, but this is a chance for children and young people’s voices to be heard. Young people must be between year 3 and the sixth form. Parents/carers do not need to stay.
