Waymark 2019


On October 12th & 13th October 2019, lay and clergy representatives from across Durham Diocese will be gathering at the Xcel Centre, Newton Aycliffe. The purpose of the conference, which is called Waymark, is to reflect on mission, leadership and culture change in our diocese and to prayerfully discern the way ahead.  In launching Waymark in November 2018, Bishop Paul said:  ‘This conference, and the build-up to it over the coming months, mark a critical period in the life of our Diocese.  We have named the conference Waymark, as our gathering will be an important step on our journey; a moment of arrival, of pausing for reflection, and then moving ahead together.  The Waymark weekend will be a mixture of guest contributions, group and informal discussions, as well as opportunities for quiet reflection and prayer. Please take a prayer card home with you today if you have note already got one.

We are invited to send two lay people from the parish, along with Revd Stuart, to this conference which will be attended by representatives from every parish in the diocese.  The purpose is to reflect on God’s mission in our diocese, especially in the three priority areas of Children and Young People, Poverty and Growth, sharing stories and discerning the focus for the way forward.

We are looking for two people who are prepared to be actively involved within the mission of the parish, and willing to participate both to the build up to the conference, and to the conference itself.    There will be an opportunity to look at the pre-conference material in a wider group beforehand.  Would you like to attend?  Or could you suggest someone else who could represent us?  Please speak to one of the Clergy with your suggestions, and keep those preparing to attend in your prayers.
