In 2009 the General Synod will debate the reception of "Mission-shaped Church" in the five years since its publication, and will also give a steer for the future development of the mixed economy church.
As part of the process of preparing for this debate, Rachel Jordan is conducting research into the way the report has been received and implemented in the dioceses. Rachel will be in touch with diocesan missioners and with the relevant senior staff member in each diocese, for a series of phone conversations to get your impressions of the way things are. We are also sending a questionnaire around the dioceses to get some hard data.
Please help Rachel to get as clear a picture as possible of the way things are looking now with regard to the mixed economy church where you are. And do write in with any additional comments or ideas which might inform the coming debate. We will be publishing a discussion document, probably in the late Autumn, which will paint the picture as we see it.
