Dcn Steve Davies has kindly agreed to be the Scripture Champion for the Diocese for the 2020 God who Speaks project. The role of the Scripture Champion(s) in each diocese is principally that of coordinating the activities across the Diocese and being a channel of communication of diocesan and national events more than organising events and scripture development in individual parishes. If you have a parish activity you want to promote or have ideas you want to share, please pass them on to Steve.

The Bible and You: As part of the preparations for this same initiative, the Bishops are also conducting a short survey about how we engage with the Bible; an identical survey will then be conducted at the end of 2020 and the data compared. The survey can be completed online at https:// www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LDJBN5Y. Do complete it as it will help to provide the right focus, activities and resources for 2020 as well as supporting dioceses going forward.
