Areas of Work

World Development group exists to challenge the churches to campaign on, direct resources to and theologise about the persistence of poverty as an affront to the dignity of humankind. As a part of this the diocese attained Fairtrade status in 2005 and gained recertification in 2008.

We regularly support parish ministry by enabling curates to visit our link dioceses in India and Tanzania. See Blog

We see our role to resource the Diocese and parishes on issues of church and society. As Christians we offer the context of our faith as the basis of our engagement with the world. We encourage our parishes to care about God’s world and people. This is rooted in gospel values such as the command to love our neighbour as ourselves and to offer support to the most disadvantaged in society.

We use a variety of action groups to take this work forward, through work in parishes, deaneries and conferences, with training days and support groups. Officers and staff are available to talk with deaneries, chapters, parishes and other groups and to receive enquiries.
