Welcome to the Healthy Churches section of Coventry Diocesan website. Use the menu boxes below to find out more and obtain resources.
Coventry Diocese has as its purpose:
Worshipping God, Making New Disciples, Transforming Communities
To foster growth and fulfil this threefold purpose the Diocesan Synod and Bishop's Council agreed to make its primary strategy the fostering of the development of the 8 Essential Quality Characteristics of healthy churches as identified by the Institute of Natural Church Development.
A Healthy Churches Development Mentor was appointed to develop a strategy for the development of the 8EQs across the parishes of the diocese and at every level of the diocese to help them become woven into the DNA of the structures and churches of the diocese. All enquiries about the 8 Essential Qualities, Parish Presentations, implementation of growth principles etc should be addressed to Tim Mitchell.
