Vision Delivery

The Vision Delivery Team exists to serve our parishes and clergy and is led by Carolyn Barton. National church funding has been received to fund or part-fund the posts below. 

  • The Pastoral Secretary is the Secretary to the Diocesan Mission and Pastoral Committee. They are responsible for all Pastoral Schemes and Orders, from the drafting of initial proposals to their completion and ensuring that the correct procedures and timescales are followed. They also have responsibility for the closed churches and actively involved in finding alternative use for such buildings.
  • The Senior Church Buildings Officer/Diocesan Advisory Committee Secretary provides support to parishes that are looking to undertake maintenance on/improvements to their buildings. They utilise the on-line faculty system for processing List A/List B and full faculty applciations.
