The committee's remit is to foster and encourage an interest in the church in other countries throughout the diocese, co-ordinating and disseminating information and working in partnerships with the established missionary societies.
Partnership with Tanzania
The Diocese of Hereford is partnered with four dioceses in Tanzania: Tanga, Dar es Salaam, Masasi and Newala. Our partner dioceses all lie on the Indian Ocean coast of Tanzania.
We actively support permaculture, health work, schools and churches in Tanzania. We also sponsor students training for ordination. We benefit from the example and encouragement of fellow-Christians whose churches are growing rapidly.
Hereford-Nuremberg Partnership - our partnership link has been running for more than thirty years, beginning in 1982. Parish and Deanery Links have led to fruitful exchanges between:
- Ludlow, Langwasser and Neustadt
- Pontesbury and Schwabach
- Canon Pyon and Förrenbach
- Hilpoltstein and Madley, and All Saints,
- Hereford with the Old Catholics in Nuremberg
A School Partnership between the Bishop of Hereford's Bluecoat School, Hereford and the Wilhelm-Löhe-Schule in Nuremberg has included a joint visit to the First World War battlefields in Belgium.
In recognition of her work over many years to promote this school link, Hereford Cathedral honoured Ursula Köhler with the Order of St Ethelbert. We are also pleased to see the flourishing new partnership between Earl Mortimer College in Leominster and the Hans-Sachs-Gymnasium in Nuremberg.
Holy Land Group
The Holy Land Group is ecumenical and interfaith. It exists on behalf of all those who call The Holy Land their home. It aims to highlight their fears and hopes and to foster dialogue.
In order to develop an understanding of the situation of those on all sides, it organises occasional seminars led by a person of repute who can give a particular insight into the ongoing issues.
