The last eighteen months have been quite a challenge when it has come to catechesis in our parishes. If there has been a benefit to the pandemic it is that we are all far more adept at doing things on-line. Therefore this new venture gathers catechists, experienced and inexperienced, to meet on-line to share ideas and to possibly receive a little bit of formation at the same time. These meetings will ensure a crossover of deaneries so that good practice can be shared across the diocese. The first date for these below. If you are unable to attend the meeting related to their deanery they are free to join another. The boundaries are fluid.

Taunton, Weston and GlastonburyOctober 5th7.30-8.30pm
Bristol including CathedralOctober 6th7.30-8.30pm
Bath Trowbridge and SalisburyOctober 7th7.30-8.30pm
Stroud and SwindonOctober  12th7.30-8.30pm
Gloucester and CheltenhamOctober 14th7.30-8.30pm

To participate in the conversation, you just need to register at – and include the meeting they wish to attend, so that we can send an invitation for the correct date. These meetings will be via Microsoft Teams. A Teams invitation/link to the session will be sent out a few days before each meeting.
