The Rt Revd Dr John Perumbalath, Bishop of Liverpool, and The Rt Revd Beverley Mason, Bishop of Warrington, say:
“We and our Diocesan colleagues commit ourselves to support, sustain, and resource you in your ministry. The most important gift you can bring to your people is your best self, flourishing in your ministry and in your personal life. Nourishing your best self under God is a matter for you, supported by us all. We expect and would hold you accountable for, a high level of personal responsibility from you in the conduct of your ministry within the direction to which we are committed together.
We pray that together we can work to achieve our vision of a bigger church making a bigger difference with more people knowing Jesus and more justice in the world.
We hope you continue to flourish in your ministry in the Diocese of Liverpool.”
