The Diocesan Goals

The Parochial Church Council of the Parish of Chilworth are planning with the Vicar how to meet the Bishop's Diocesan Goals for transforming the church now and in the years to come. 

Transforming Church, Transforming Lives is the Vision and Mission Strategy for the Diocese of Guildford.
