Growing Together

Have you heard about this exciting adventure? Growing Together is journey we are all embarking in the Diocese of Edinburgh to explore and articulate what God is calling us to be and do, at this time for this generation. As church communities we aspire to be faithful followers of Christ in our worship, service and witness and so with constant change all around it is an opportune time to discern our vision and key priorities to give a clearer focus for the days ahead. Our hope is that this process of Growing Together will help us all develop stronger relationships, deeper faith, confident witness, wise stewardship and effective resources.

Two ferns growing upwardsEvery member of our diocese is invited to join in this journey.

Bishop John will be travelling the Diocese and we would love you to come with others from your church to one of the Roadshow events in four different locations. Come and contribute to the discernment of our vision and priorities. We want to reflect together on the adventure so far and listen to your local stories about what is working well in your church. We will spend time in worship and prayer, discussion and lunch. These events will be interactive, fun and inspiring as we discover and celebrate what God is doing amongst us.

Bishop John Armes has commended the use of the dismissal in our worship these the coming months. Paper copies of these resources can be requested from the office and they are downloadable here:
