Intercultural Communities


One of our priorities is to work towards better reflecting the communities around us. We seek to serve everyone of all faiths and none through our churches, fresh expressions of Church and our schools.

This includes improving the focus of our vocations work to help Christians from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) heritage to feel welcomed and enabled to grow into leadership roles in our churches.

Our Intercultural Ministry Director, Jessie Tang, is leading some of that work which includes a new Intercultural Worshipping Communities (IWC) project, funded by the national Church. He leads on the Diocesan Forum for Ethnic Minority Anglican (DFEMA) committee and is also a member of the new national Church of England Anti-Racism Taskforce.

We are also developing training on Unconscious Bias, providing support and resources for churches and highlighting key events in the diocese and beyond. If you have any queries about any of this work, please contact Luke Fogg (luke.fogg@leicestercofe.org)

Bishop of Leicester, Martyn Snow, said:

“This is a priority for me and the whole diocese. From its inception in 1926, the Diocese of Leicester has witnessed a radical transformation to the context in which it is called to minister the gospel. Today it is serving a cosmopolitan population with people from diverse geographic, cultural, religious, and ethnic backgrounds. Alongside what we are learning from our Rural Commission work, building upon our fresh expressions of Church projects and aligning aspects of this strategy to our Resourcing Churches strategy, we have embarked upon a long term project that has the potential to fundamentally transform our ability for mission and ministry.”
