Our vision

In response to God’s immense love for us we seek to be God’s people living and telling the story of Jesus.

Our vision and the diocesan strategy that is emerging from it speaks of the story of Jesus; his life, teaching and work, his death and resurrection; the story which is the context of our faith and the content of our message.

We seek to live this story as disciples of Jesus Christ in the world and to tell it, both in sharing the good news and by the way in which our lives speak about Him.

Bishop Peter’s work on a new vision and strategy for the diocese began during his first year as Bishop of Bath and Wells, which he spent visiting parishes and listening.

With the input from people, clergy and lay, from across the diocese development of the strategy continues.  Three priorities for action have been agreed and  2017’s Community Conversation events, where over 600 people gathered to share stories and experiences have captured a wealth of information that is set to shape the future of our diocese as we love and serve the 900,000 people of Somerset.
