You may know lots about what’s happening in the Martyrs, but how much do you know about God’s work in the rest of Leicester Diocese? There are wonderful things happening all around Leicestershire, but how can you find out?
There’s a dedicated team at our diocesan headquarters (St Martins House) who bring together the news, views & events from around the Diocese who’d love to hear about what’s happening with you and let you share in the excitement about what’s happening elsewhere.
Beth Cluer, from the Diocesan Mission & Ministry Team, says “Our aim is to create much more of a dialogue in everything that we do - we want to hear about news, what you are celebrating and where you see God at work. This is an opportunity to share and learn from what people are doing and to become enthused by it.”
The easiest ways to get stuck in are to read Shaped (the thrice-yearly diocesan magazine), Diomail (the weekly email of news & events) and the quarterly Prayer Diary (see below for how you can access these). There’s also a yearly Events Brochure, which has details of courses and events designed to help us deepen our discipleship and help others to do the same.
And, of course, the Diocese of Leicester Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds.
‘Shaped’ is the new name for ‘In Shape’, reflecting the Diocese’s vision of being Shaped by God. It features articles about projects and news from around the Diocese, plus personal reflection, world issues, prayer, and how these link to our Christian lives.
Currently available as a magazine at the back of church, it will soon be available on the Diocese of Leicester website www.leicester.anglican.org
Diomail has newsflashes, topical stories, and notices of events. To receive it, go to the Diocese Website front page, and scroll right down until you see the Newsletter sign-up box.
