Stunning amount of C of E action in Ely Diocese

Okay, it’s about time that those who predict the demise of the Church of England take a look at this latest document to come from Ely – The summary of Mission Action Plans 2009. It has taken someone/people a very long time to summarise all the plans that have been sent in over he past months, but it is so well worth doing.It starts with Abbots Ripon and ends with Yelling – and inbetween are hundreds of parishes with a variety of hopes and dreams for growth in the future.

Many come under the following categories: Community / Events /Welcome  Children / Buildings/ Outreach/Mission/Fresh Expressions/Research/Justice/Ecumenical/spiritual growth/fellowship …. and a few more.  Its an amazing outpouring of desire to grow church and bring new life into existing congregations. Great to see so many churches wanting to do things to their buildings to make them mroe welcoming for the community – thats my special interest.  So – id like to put this document under the noses of those pessimistic journalists who think the Church of England is moribund.
