Diocese of

Hexham and Newcastle

Bishop Séamus Cunningham

Diocesan Vision (March 2011)

As sent out to parishes at the end of March 2011 for display on church notice boards:


Our Diocesan Vision

“Listen, I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you, and eat with you and you with me”.
(Rev. 3:20)

This Word of God challenges us as a Diocese to:

• Worship God

• Proclaim the Gospel

• Serve everyone with love

Building on this vision we are encouraged to be rooted and grounded in a loving relationship with Christ.

Formation in this relationship must undergird everything we say and do as a Diocese.

To this end we need to commit ourselves, clergy and laity alike, to formation together as the People of God in Hexham and Newcastle.

It is our responsibility to build up Christ’s Church.

It starts with each one of us.
