An ON-LINE BRIEFING FROM THE NATIONAL DEANERIES NETWORK

Bishop Martin Seeley

The new Vision and Strategy is underway but the foundations are already clear: The Church of England must adapt and put its trust in God to become a simpler, humbler, bolder Church that is Jesus Christ centred and Jesus Christ shaped.

  • What will ministry look like in the future?
  • How will it need to adapt?
  • What will it mean for the way we select, train and develop ordained and lay ministers?

With the experiences and the lessons of lockdown, and the unprecedented nature of the last two years, Bishop Martin Seeley looks forward to the ways in which ministry – ordained and lay – needs to develop for the future.

This will be in the context of the general review of Church strategy being led by the Archbishop of York, of which Bishop Martin is part. Now Bishop of St Eds and Ips (comprising most of Suffolk), Martin is the lead on ministry for the Church, following his previous job heading Westcott House theological college.

Whilst a champion of Parish and Deanery ministry Bishop Martin has extensive experience education and ministry development for both ordained and lay.
