It was a great privilege last November to share with Synod the emerging vision and strategy for the Church of England in the 2020s. Since then I’ve had opportunities to speak with many individual members of Synod, in several dioceses, and to meet with other groups, not least the chairs of the House of Laity and the House of Clergy. The three words ‘simpler’, ‘humbler’ and ‘bolder’ seem to have landed well. They capture something of the spirit of the Church God is calling us to become.
