The Blackburn Diocese will be celebrating its centenary in 2026, and it is hoped that by then, an additional 50 congregations will have been established across the diocese. This will be achieved not only by church planting but also additional congregations being developed in our own churches.
Each parish in the diocese will appoint a vision champion who will ensure that this aim can be reached, by exploring what their parish can do. There could be changes to our worship patterns, new services to cater for those seeking God but that do not currently worship with us, running enquirers courses and seeking to use our resources better for the community.
VISION 2026 COURSES
As part of the ‘Vision 2026’ courses will be arranged all over the diocese, to encourage growth within our parishes, to expand our outreach projects into the community, and to encourage those with leadership qualities to come forward
