Vision and culture

Our vision is driven and sustained by our desire to know and serve God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and to make him known to all. The Values Statement is intended to be read alongside our other diocesan policies, including Capital Vision 2020 and the various College of Bishops policy papers. Underlining our vision and values is our far-reaching unconscious bias initiative.
