The Bishop's Rural Commission comes to Packington Church


The Rural Commission comes to Packington.

Tuesday November 7th at 7.30pm in Holy Rood Church.

The Bishop of Leicester, following his initial visits to the parishes of the Diocese last year, wishes to explore the questions raised by our rural context with respect to the Church of England’s mission and ministry in Leicestershire. He has set up a Rural Commission headed by the Dean of Leicester Cathedral, the Very Revd. David Monteith.

  The purpose of the Commission is to:

  • Enable the voice of the rural church and rural community to be more fully articulated, heard and understood in the Diocese and beyond
  • Identify particular opportunities and challenges for the church in these contexts.

A number of public meetings are being held by the Commission - these meetings are open to both churchgoers but also residents of villages. The Commission want to hear about the joys and challenges that face the rural church. It is our chance to be heard. One of these meetings is being held in Holy Rood Church in Packington on Tuesday 7th November at 7.30pm. Feel free to come along.

 The Commission also invites submission by letter or email to be received no later than 31 December 2017.  These may be sent to the Very Revd David Monteith, Deep Wells and Green Pastures, St Martins House, 7 Peacock Lane, Leicester, LE1 5PZ.  Please mark emails as ‘Deep Wells and Green Pastures’ and send them to
