The Imagine Project is an initiative responding to the Bishop’s challenge in ahealthychurch...transforminglife to promote mission in the Diocese of Tasmania.

The initiative will work with existing strategies and has three broad thrusts:

  1. bringing the authority and accountabilities of the office of bishop to build grass-roots mission
