Development Day 2018

What will a generous and flourishing Diocese of Sheffield look like in 2025?

This is the question Bishop Pete Wilcox has been asking the diocese since he was installed in the diocese in September 2017.  Through consultation it has helped us formulate a revised diocesan strategy that was launched at Development Day on 6 October 2018.  The day then centered on how this strategy could be implemented across the Diocese.  Three keynotes looked at each strand of the strategy: Renewed (with Bishop Pete); Released (with Alison Coulter) and Rejuvenated (with Bishop Ric Thorpe).  Resources from the day are available below (check back for updates as more are added).
