Renewal and Reform Team visit Ely to hear about Changing Market Towns Project

Posted on Friday 1 February 2019
On 31 January the Renewal and Reform team from Church House, hosted in the Diocese of Ely, gathered a group for a discussion on market towns and the challenges, potential, similarities and opportunities that they share around the country.

Paul Evans, (Diocesan Secretary, Diocese of Ely) gave an overview of the Ely Diocesan Strategy - Ely2025: People Fully Alive, and spoke about how the three imperatives- Engage, Grow, Deepen – and the five Levers of Change were being realised.

Mike Booker (Bishop’s Change Officer for Market Towns) and Adam Evans (Strategic Programme Manager) presented on how the Changing Market Towns Project, part funding by the Church Commissioners, was evolving. [To find out more about the Diocese of Ely Changing Market Towns Project go to:]

The day provided an opportunity to share ideas, thoughts and reflections on how these towns might be in the future and what might be collectively learnt about how to respond to the changes and potential challenges for the church and its communities.
