Strategic Directions

The Strategic Directions of the Diocese of Wangaratta are the foundation on which the Diocese can build a strong future in a time when the environments and communities around us, and the demographics of the church itself, are constantly changing.

Embracing the Future Together

PROCLAIMING THE FAITH

Share and teach the gospel, spiritual education and renewal, in ways that meet the needs of church goers, and potential church goers (faith, worship and ministry).

MINISTRY

Cultivate healthy and diverse parishes with clergy and laity working together to deliver sustainable ministry, supported by vocational development and education.

SERVING COMMUNITIES

Live our mission through engagement with communities locally and further afield.

LEADERSHIP AND RELATIONSHIPS

Strengthen leadership capacity at all levels to enable respectful relationships and help rebuild trust. Develop and build critical partnerships that enable our mission to be fulfilled and communicated in unity.

STEWARDSHIP (Financial, Spiritual and Missional)

Carefully and creatively manage the gifts and resources of the Diocese to enable long term sustainability, meeting professional and ethical standards.
