Diocese of Chichester

By 2020 we would like to see the following in place:

Every Benefice to have a plan in place for Christian growth and nurture and a credible but stretching target for numerical growth.

A diocesan policy that facilitates and releases energy to plant churches into areas of recognised need and opportunity.

Every Benefice to be financially self-supporting, through a combination of encouraging generosity, grouping into financially sustainable units and, in areas of deprivation, the provision of direct grant help from historic resources.
