The timetable for the live Vision Feedback Event on Saturday 20 May

10.30am - Arrival at your local "watch party" venue

10.45am - There will be a short moment of prayer and thanksgiving

11.00am - The event begins at Chester Cathedral, with each venue contributing to the event via video link

The Bishop of Chester, Mark Tanner, will lead the service at Chester Cathedral where he will share the emerging themes and priorities that have been identified through the consultation.

In the video below Bishop Mark invites the whole diocese to be a part of the event, at Chester Cathedral and at the four locations around the diocese, and emphasises the importance of listening to each other and to God. He says: "We believe that it's really important that we listen to each other, that we listen to people outside the Church, but, most importantly, that we listen to God as we try to discern his priorities for our life together in this next phase of being the Diocese of Chester, for all of the 1.65 million people who are part of our communities."

The service will also be broadcast on the Diocese of Chester's YouTube channel for anyone unable to attend.
