Diocese of Arundel and Brighton Article

Diocesan Formation Team

The Diocesan Formation Team exists to support the parishes and communities of the diocese. The team comprises seven advisers covering specialist areas but also working together on overlapping issues. Although the team is based at the St Philip Howard Centre (formerly DABCEC) it works across the diocese and advisers will always come to parishes or deaneries to deliver courses or provide other support. Alongside the parish work, the team organises a number of diocesan events which are hosted in different parts of the diocese to enable all to access these opportunities. Details of the range of courses available can be found in the Courses and Resources booklet. The courses listed are flexible and advisers will adapt material according to a particular need. The Advisers are always available to discuss your specific requirements.

Formation and Spirituality
The aim of Spirituality and Formation is to assist parishes to form adults into missionary disciples of Jesus Christ. Four key areas of work are * to provide training opportunities for Catechists, including a diocesan course and parish based sessions * offering advice and resources to parishes developing their own strategies for adult formation * supporting the mission of evangelisation by providing events and training, and identifying resources * provide faith-sharing materials for small groups in Advent and Lent
Dialogue and Unity
The aim of this role is to work with the parishes and other communities of the Diocese to promote, encourage and support ecumenical activity as an integral part of parish and diocesan life. Involved with Churches Together groups at local, county and national levels. Activities and resources include: * "Together to Unity" - a training pack for parishes * visiting parishes to share information and best practice * guidance on preparing ecumenical services * annual Dialogue and Unity gathering.
My role is to provide advice and support to parishes, deaneries and other Diocesan groups regarding * raising awareness about all aspects of Inclusion through training and developing resources * statutory provision regarding accessibility and related legislation * facilitating adapted or alternative sacramental preparation for those who cannot access the parish sacramental programmes * helping parishes to tackle causes of inadvertent exclusion of any group or individual
Justice and Peace - see Social Action
In relation to Justice & Peace we seek to raise awareness of issues through * helping parishes to set up J&P groups and supporting existing groups * coordinating action on campaigning issues and helping to develop networks * communicating national and international concerns to individuals and groups * helping others access related agencies. Please see the Social Action entry for information.
Liturgy and Music
My role is to help parishes and individuals involved in the preparation and celebration of the Liturgy, including its musical elements, through formation, training and support * planning and co-ordinating diocesan liturgies * offering advice, initial training and formation, and support for those engaged in parish liturgical ministries * providing ongoing formation for liturgical development * organising music repertoire sessions * providing advice (with the Art and Architecture Committee) on the reorganisation and embellishment of worship spaces and the design of new churches and chapels
Marriage and Family Life
My role is to promote a Catholic understanding of marriage. I aim to achieve this by helping people at different stages either to prepare for marriage, develop family spirituality or to deal with major events in family life. Some key aspects of my work include * developing marriage preparation with training and materials for those delivering marriage preparation courses * offering training and support for bereavement befrienders * support families in their prayer lives through initiatives such as 'Home is a Holy Place' For regular updates on events and resources, please visit our Marriage & Family Life Web page/Blog at:
Social Action
In this role we seek to raise awareness of social needs in the parish and wider community, and encourage people in the parishes to take direct action to address urgent needs, with particular interest in * helping those engaged in working with refugees and asylum seekers * supporting those who work with the homeless * supporting those who are affected by family members with mental illness
Youth Service
The main focus of my role is to empower people in parishes and deaneries to set up and maintain groups for young people, enabling them to discover God’s love for them and what their response could be to that love. I will be running a series of discernment and formation programmes across the Diocese to give more people an opportunity to explore whether youth ministry is something they would like to be involved in, no matter their current skill set. The other areas of my role include: working with young adults in discerning their vocation, supporting Confirmation Catechists, creating opportunities for young people to engage with the wider church through events and pilgrimages.
