Diocesan Objectives



In February 2019, Bishop Seamus launched the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle’s Vision, Mission and Values. The next step in this process was to develop Diocesan Objectives. These were drafted in March 2019 by the Diocesan Strategy Committee and after review and recommendation by Bishop Robert Byrne CO and the Episcopal Council they were presented to the Diocesan Board who agreed the following three objectives.

The Diocese will ensure the:

  • Dynamic growth and renewal of the Church through our Partnerships.

  • Building of God’s Kingdom in community and in public life.

  • Sustainability and resourcing of the Diocesan mission and ministry.

These three objectives will form the basis for ongoing reflection and discernment.
