Diocese of Chichester

Parish Development is here solely to support and resource parish ministry as we work together on delivering the diocesan vision of 'To Know, Love and Follow Jesus'.

We have a particular passion for supporting parishes in creating a vision for their churches, to grow numerically & spiritually, to contribute to the common good and to re-imagine ministry, and as such we operate as an “in house” parish development consultancy team.

This team is lead by Rob Dillingham, Deputy Director for Apostolic Life, and pulls in a mixture of church house officers, experienced practitioners, and priests within the diocese, depending on the individual parish’s needs.
