DBE Mission Statement

The Board has authorised a Mission Statement as follows:

Our mission in growing disciples is

  • to enable schools in partnership with churches to be the places that deliver the best outcomes for children and their families educationally, spiritually and emotionally within a Christian context.
  • to support and equip the churches in their work with children and young people
  • to enable young people to have access to an innovative Network Youth Church programme and intern scheme.


The priorities identified through this process are:

  1. A Mission Action Plan for each church/mission cluster including plans for work with children, young people and schools.
  2. For all Church Schools in the Diocese to be as good as they can be.
  3. For many of our children in church Primary schools (and some non-church) to have access to a Christian after-school activity and wherever practicable develop so that it can become a 'fresh expression' of church.
  4. To enable every secondary school in the Diocese to have good church links.
  5. A Network Youth Church in Every Deanery, with local cell groups and worship and teaching appropriate to young people.
  6. To deliver an expanded internship programme.


The recommendations of the review were approved by the Board of Education on 10th March 2010 and Synod on 13th March 2010.
