Let Us Talk

 about the Personality and Character
of the Diocese of Salisbury

The Bishop of Salisbury launched 'Let Us Talk' during a presentation to Diocesan Synod on Saturday 3 November 2012, asking the following questions:

  1. What is the ‘Personality and Character’ of your local church? 
  2. What are the priorities of your local church?
  3. Is there one thing you would like to take on in the coming year (recognising that may mean you may need to stop doing something else)?
  4. Are there ways in which we can work together to achieve more? 
  5. How can we best measure the quality and impact of church life?
