Cast the Net


“Jesus said to them, ‘Children, you have no fish, have you?’ They answered him, ‘No.’ He said to them, ‘Cast the net to the right side of the boat, and you will find some.’ So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in because there were so many fish.” (John 21)


The diocese is embarking on a visioning process to meet the challenges and opportunities of the next five years. After more than two years of pandemic, we need to rediscover how to sing together again.

Vision & calls to the Diocese


A Vision Statement and Calls to the Diocese have emerged in response to the listening process. The vision has many components; at its heart is the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the centre of all we do. In November 2023, Synod members voted to endorse the vision and calls to the Diocese.

Hover over the pulsing dots to reveal the “we” statements related to each element of the vision.
