Following the open conversations held around the Diocese at the start of the year, we are now planning a series of further opportunities to engage with the process as we look at how we can effectively resource a healthy and sustainable Church into the future. 

It will be a chance to hear more about the strategy for mission and ministry across the Diocese and think about how it might impact on your own church. Only by working together can we ensure that God's Kingdom continues to grow in Worcestershire and Dudley.

These meetings will be held online using Zoom, but will follow a similar format to the previous open conversations, with opportunities for people to contribute in small groups. To sign up for one of the conversations, please contact the training team with your preferred date on training@cofe-worcester.org.uk or 01905 732812, You will be sent the Zoom details ahead of the conversation. 

Conversations will take place on the following dates: 

  • Tuesday 8 September: 3 to 5pm and from 6 to 8pm
  • Friday 18 September: 10am to 12 noon
  • Monday 21 September: 6 to 8pm
  • Tuesday 22 September: 6 to 8pm
  • Thursday 24 September: 6 pm to 8pm
  • Monday 28 September: 2 to 4pm and 6 to 8pm:

To sign up for one of the conversations, please contact the training team with your preferred date on training@cofe-worcester.org.uk or 01905 732812, You will be sent the Zoom details ahead of the conversation. 

What if I don’t have access to Zoom – how can I get involved?

Recognising that not everyone will be able to join a video call, we are providing two alternative ways to take part in the Open Conversation process:

  1. We are asking those attending to partner up with someone in their church without zoom access and share their experience, if possible, showing some of the video clips which will be available on this web page on their own tablet or phone, and giving a summary of the table time discussions in which they participated.  So please do ask around in your congregation and find someone who is willing to do this with you.
  2. Join our telephone conference call on Monday 14 September, 11am, where a shortened version of the input will be communicated. This will be free to dial into, and accessible to anyone with a phone. 

To sign up for the telephone conference call, please contact the training team on training@cofe-worcester.org.uk or 01905 732812. You will be given details of how to join the call when you book (you will need to provide a name and the phone number that you'll be calling from so that you can be indentified during the meeting).
