- Why this matters to churches and circuits
- What he hopes to achieve as our new District Chair (subject to Methodist Conference)

The Regional Review Group (RRG) represents the existing five Districts and is overseeing the coming together into one District. The RRG is extremely mindful of the importance of communicating well as we progress towards the launch of our new District on September 1st, 2024.

In order to keep everyone across the new District up to date and well informed, the RRG has formed a Communications Subgroup whose job is to make sure that all of us have the information and updates we need.

Some of the initiatives we are considering are:

·Information seminars so that the process can be fully explained, and your questions answered.

·The setting up of a dedicated email address so that specific questions and queries can be raised and answered. 

·Ways of ensuring that everyone feels equipped for future online meetings and gatherings.

We would also like to know if you have any other ideas to help us communicate with you.

Please keep an eye out for further communications, and do please tell us if you have any comments or observations over the next weeks and months i.e. too much communication, not enough, or not covering the topics that are important to you.
