Transforming Church​, Transforming Lives

The Diocese of Guildford's shared vision is to be a Transforming Church, Transforming Lives. This is our Mission Strategy which, through 12 transformation goals, encapsulates everything we are about.

The vision came from you - the parishes, as a direct response to a wide ranging process of surveys and consultations which saw over 1,500 people from diverse standpoints and communities across our diocese consulted. 

At its heart, our vision is about growth. The video below shows some stories where growth is already being experienced in our diocese, with the committed aspiration that, with God's blessing, our Church Development Plans (CPDs) will add many more in the years to come.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

Matthew 13:31
