Interim Report from Our Partnership

WOODFORD AND WANSTEAD PARISH PARTNERSHIP: JULY REPORT FOR DIOCESE

We met as a Partnership in December 2018 over a meal to get to know each other. This included Priests from the Parishes and Stewards of the Gospel.

We have met four times in 2019:

  • 24 January 2019 in St Anne Line with Parish Councils, Priests and Stewards. The aim was to get to know each other and to start to discuss the issues in the Vision Document.
  • 5 March 2019 in Our Lady of Lourdes with Chairs of Parish Councils and Stewards. The respective Parish Questionnaires were shared following this meeting.
  • 7 May 2019 in St Thomas of Canterbury with Chairs of Parish Councils, Priests and Stewards. This meeting started to discuss elements of Partnership.
  • 19 June in St Anne Line with Chairs of Parish Councils, Priests and Stewards. This meeting built on 7 May discussions, and looked for areas of common ground.

Another meeting has been planned for October with a focus on the youth.

Each Parish has shared links to the Partnership, including minutes and Diocesan documents. Each Parish shares information about each others events.

We are not of one mind, we are listening to each other, we are looking for areas of common ground, we are going to see what we could find at our own pace.
