During his time as Interim Pastor at St Peter’s, Bishop David Chillingworth undertook a number of initiatives. One was the establishment of ‘Looking to the Future Groups’. In February and March 2019, two groups met twice each with an open agenda to look together at the future of the congregation and, in particular, its mission and ministry.
Twenty Nine people took part with the groups being led by Bishop David and supported by Lay Reader, Mrs Janet McKinnell, and NSM Priest, Revd Sue Whitehouse. The groups were representative of different age groups and contained people who were involved in most of the congregational organisations. The discussions were all lively and wide ranging.
