The two volumes of this book present the fruits of the experience to date. Volume one presents what has been learned over the years about what is involved in parish renewal. Parish Renewal is about a new way of being together in the parish; it invites God's people to think about parish in a new way. This has meant a new experience of Church for many people, a new sense of hope in the parishes, and a new focus for energy for the diocese as a whole.
Volume two gathers together the resources that have been developed in order to further the process of renewal.
