Background and history

Bishop Julian originally presented our vision for the future of the Diocese to the Bishop's Leadership Team, Bishop's Council and Diocesan Synod over a period of several months in late 2014 and early 2015. He spoke to DIocesan Synod about our vision on October 18, 2014, almost a year to the day since he first arrived in the Diocese as Bishop.

An initial summary document was handed out to all Synod representatives prior to a special 'Vision Synod Meeting' on February 7, 2015 and before ratification of the proposals at Synod in March 2015. 

A summary document was also made available on the Diocesan website alongside the longer vision document, and were promoted in the local media, and via direct emails to parishes.

Vision 2026 now drives everything we do across the Church of England in Lancashire.
