Waymark 2019

On October 12th & 13th October 2019, lay and clergy representatives from across Durham Diocese will be gathering at the Xcel Centre, Newton Aycliffe. The purpose of the conference, which is called Waymark, is to reflect on mission, leadership and culture change in our diocese and to prayerfully discern the way ahead.  In launching Waymark in November 2018, Bishop Paul said:  ‘This conference, and the build-up to it over the coming months, mark a critical period in the life of our Diocese.  We have named the conference Waymark, as our gathering will be an important step on our journey; a moment of arrival, of pausing for reflection, and then moving ahead together.  The Waymark weekend will be a mixture of guest contributions, group and informal discussions, as well as opportunities for quiet reflection and prayer. Please take a prayer card home with you today if you have note already got one.
