The Sign We Give

Author: The Bishops' Conference of England and Wales

In 1992, the National Conference of Priests studied collaborative ministry.  They then asked the bishops to form a working party to see how it could be further developed in the dioceses of England and Wales.  The bishops set up a working party with twelve members, men and women, lay, religious and ordained.  This report, which received the wholehearted approval of the Bishops’ Conference at Low Week 1995, is the result of their work.  It is for all those interested or involved in collaborative ministry, and aims to ‘encourage the Church at every level to think more deeply and more imaginatively about the theology and practice of the collaborative ministry.’

REPORT FROM THE WORKING PARTY ON COLLABORATIVE MINISTRY. APPROVED BY THE BISHOPS’ CONFERENCE OF ENGLAND AND WALES.

In 1992, the National Conference of Priests studied collaborative ministry.  They then asked the bishops to form a working party to see how it could be further developed in the dioceses of England and Wales.  The bishops set up a working party with twelve members, men, and women, lay, religious and ordained.  This report, which received the wholehearted approval of the Bishops’ Conference at Low Week 1995, is the result of their work.  It is for all those interested or involved in collaborative ministry, and aims to ‘encourage the Church at every level to think more deeply and more imaginatively about the theology and practice of the collaborative ministry.’

The Report also contains six study outlines to assist those who wish to explore its implications. They can be used in parishes, in pastoral councils at any level, in pastoral teams and by many other groups concerned to explore the future shape of the Church.  To all these, the report offers food for reflection and study drawing deeply upon the Church’s teaching and recognising the pastoral needs and circumstances of the Church in England and Wales today.

‘I believe it contains the seeds of a revolution in the way in which we live and work in the Church today.  The revolution is not simply one which will radically affect our internal structures; it is a revolutionary insight into the way in which we exercise our mission, which is to proclaim the good news in today’s world.’ From the Foreword by Bishop Crispian Hollis of Portsmouth Diocese.
