A Time to Change Together is the agreed way forward for the Diocese of Lincoln. As a family of churches, the body of Christ, and for the flourishing of his Church, we have committed to:

‘Though we are many, we are one body, because we all share in one bread’

1 Corinthians 10:17

Essential to the new way of working are two new overlaid structures which bring together parishes, benefices and deaneries into workable, missional joined-up patterns: Deanery Partnerships and Local Mission Partnerships.
