God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – is in the business of transforming individuals and communities, and we have the joyful privilege of joining in.”

Transforming Church?, Transforming Lives

The Diocese of Guildford’s shared vision is to be a Transforming Church, Transforming Lives. This is our Mission Strategy which, through 12 transformation goals, encapsulates everything we are about. The vision came from the parishes, as a direct response to a wide ranging process of surveys and consultations which saw over 1,500 people from diverse standpoints and communities across our diocese consulted.  At its heart, our vision is about growth. This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=532gXiAHwfY) shows some stories where growth is already being experienced in our diocese, with the committed aspiration that, with God’s blessing, our Church Development Plans (CPDs) will add many more in the years to come.
