Dear Colleague

I trust that you have been able to take some time off over the summer.
The last few months have been a time of opportunity but also a time of trial.
The future continues to look uncertain and it is hard to make plans.

I am pleased to send you the new CMD offering for the Autumn term.
Due to the changing situation we have decided that CMD will continue to be online by Zoom. We are also making plans one term at a time rather than for a whole year.

I would also like to draw your attention to a couple of key events.

First the Bishop’s Study day on November 12 to coincide with the launch of the Living in Love and Faith project. A further invitation will be sent to you in due course but please keep the date free.

Secondly, Bishop Robert would like all clergy and readers to attend an online Unconscious Bias training session. There are 16 dates/times to choose from but numbers are limited to 30 on each occasion. These sessions will help us to understand a range of bias not only related to ethnicity but also gender, sexuality, age, (dis)ability, education, accent etc.

As always, I encourage you to sit down, book some courses and put the dates in your diary.  Even though events are online, please let us know in good time if you are not able to attend an event. Our group sizes are limited and you may be preventing someone else having a place.

With my prayers and good wishes



Prebendary Philip Sourbut
Director of Mission & Ministry
