Our Vision and Priorities
Our vision is to embrace the distinctive opportunities and challenges of estate ministry and build vibrant, authentic communities of faith and mission with a serving heart for the people around them.

At the heart of our life is the desire to be always Living the Mission of Jesus. We are engaged in a strategic process to deliver a mission-shaped Diocese, in which parochial, pastoral and new forms of pioneering and radical ministry all flourish. Infused with God's missionary Spirit we want three character traits to be clearly visible in how we live:
Passionate personal spirituality;
Pioneering faith communities;
Prophetic global citizens.
The Diocese of Winchester is an exciting place to be right now. With a grant of £4.3m from the strategic Development Fund, we are investing in missional projects across the diocese which are aimed at strategic growth for the common good. We pray that, if God is calling you to join us in his mission here, he will reveal this to you clearly as you consider this post.
