2020 Vision


Serving community, inspiring people, transforming church.

Following the Church in Wales Review, exciting changes are underway in the Church in Wales as it approaches its centenary in 2020.

We’re taking a fresh look at our structure and ministry to see how we can best serve Wales in the 21st Century and make the most of our rich resources. Our vision is to be the prayerful heart of the community, sharing the Christian message in a way that engages, inspires and transforms.

Some of the changes are radical as we push the boundaries of long-established traditions while others are developments of ministry already taking place. All, however, are changes we as a Church identified and it will be in making them together that we will re-energise and re-invigorate our life and ministry across the country.
