Barnabas: Encouraging Confidence

Barnabas: Encouraging Confidence is how we work together to create confident Christians, build growing churches and be part of transforming communities.

Barnabas offers every church resources and support at different levels and will help us to become more confident in our mission, leadership, future, and witness.

The programme draws on the wisdom of the parishes, recognises everyone has something to give, and is reflected in strong relationships across the diocese.
