10 Jun 2021 • From Bishop Richard Jackson
Bishop Richard declares that 'the centre of the Church of England ... are the local churches in parishes and benefices and deaneries. They are ... the treasure and jewel of the Church. They are where God is worshipped, prayer and pastoral care are offered, faith is developed and people are drawn to living faith. This is of course is the purpose that flows out of our primary calling to worship God.'
Bishop Richard acknowledges the sadness felt by many who feel that our surrounding secular culture seems to be increasingly immune to the Christian faith, but points to how local churches can once again become beacons for renewal and revival.
