    Transforming Church Booklet The Transforming Church Booklet contains transforming stories from across the diocese, so as to help parishes work through their response to the initiative. A timeline has also been issued, to keep each parish and its consultant on track. And at its heart, writes Bishop David, this initiative ‘offers a vision of church for the 21st century… as people encounter Jesus and choose to follow him as disciples’. Although elements of this document are now out of date it still acts as a helpful document.

    Transforming Church Toolkit This Toolkit gives an outline of some of the practical out-workings of the Transforming Church initiative.

    It is now quite out of date, and we're working towards new material, but we hope that it will still be a useful resource.

    Bishop Andrew Watson:

    "The strap-line for Transforming Church is ‘growing churches at the heart of each community’, and at its heart is the prayer ‘your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as in heaven’. What would a heavenly Sparkbrook look like – or a heavenly Harborne or Dosthill, Brandwood or Solihull? That is the visionary starting-point of any new diocesan initiative. And the question that follows is this: ‘What actions might we take and prayers might we pray to see that vision move ever closer?’"

    Growing Younger Booklet

    Growing Younger is a new diocesan-wide initiative within our overall mission strategy of ‘Transforming Church’, and has been made possible by a welcome £1 million from the Church Commissioners. The aim is precisely to pass on the baton of the Christian gospel to children and families, and students and young adults as part of our vision of ‘growing churches at the heart of each community’.

    This booklet was produced to help parishes to work out how they might be able to engage with the initiative.
