A Changing Church. A Searching World. A Faithful God.

Five transformational commitments for our church

Play Video

From 2020 to 2022 and through the guidance of the Strategic Planning Working Group (SPWG), Anglicans from diverse backgrounds across the country gathered online. They gathered to listen to one another, to discern what was changing for them, and to share what their hopes, dreams and visions are for the future mission of their national church. From those conversations emerged five transformational aspirations. The video above tells the story of the journey that led to the five aspirations.

The aspirations were affirmed by the Council of General Synod in March 2022. They were tested and validated in dioceses and national church ministries, and they were approved as transformational commitments by General Synod in 2023.

Bible study: Reflections on the Journey

The familiar Gospel story of the Journey to Emmaus was a touchstone for the SPWG and its listening groups during the difficult days of March 2020 and thereafter. It is commended for reflection in dioceses, parishes and other Anglican contexts across the country.
