Our Vision

“Proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ

in Essex and East London”

The Church in Essex and East London working better and differently together to evangelise our diocese: it is a vision of the people of God here and now collaborating to use our various Grace-given gifts to evangelise our diocese to the best of our combined ability with the help of God.

Shaping Our Future

This weekend marks a key milestone in the Steward of the Gospel process as the Vision Document: Shaping Our Future is published. Bishop Alan has recorded a video message to all parishioners that can be viewed on the Diocese’s website by clicking on the News button. Please take time to watch and listen to this message in the coming days. In the News section you will also find a link to the Vision Document: Shaping Our Future.

The Vision Document: Shaping Our Future is designed as an online resource in line with our early commitment to making better use of technology and it has links through to other websites and documents. Viewing the document on line enables it be read in large print and some people have access to read aloud functions. Wherever possible we would urge you to read the document online but in the parish we have hard copies of the booklets for those who cannot access the online version.”

Diocesan Prayer

Almighty and merciful Father,

bestow your grace upon the Diocese of Brentwood.

We give thanks for the witness of past generations and pray for

a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit that we may be ever more

faithful to proclaiming the Gospel of Christ.

Bless our Bishop, the Clergy, Religious and Faithful of our Diocese

as we work together to evangelise our Diocese

and fulfil our Vision, and graciously grant plentiful vocations

to the Priesthood, the Consecrated Life, Single Life and the

Sacrament of Marriage.

Strengthen us in the communion of faith, hope and charity,

united in prayer with our Holy Father the Pope and the Universal Church.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.

Saints Erconwald, Cedd and Edmund of Canterbury, pray for us.
