Areas of Work

Each diocese has a World Development Representative / Adviser / Officer who is commissioned by the Bishop to be an advocate for global issues in the diocese and act as a source of information to clergy, PCCs and parish members.

These issues include:

  • The cancellation of unpayable poor country debt
  • Trade justice
  • Poverty alleviation
  • The environment


In other words, this is all about proclaiming the mission of God to a poor, hungry and hurting world.
Whilst world development issues are serious and vitally important, getting involved can release creativity, vitality and be fun.

What can I offer?

  • Information on world development issues
  • Details of campaigning organizations
  • Articles for church magazines [and the diocesan newspaper]
  • Sermons and talks to groups or whole church congregations
  • Encouragement to get involved
