Strategy Subject Checklist - based on @cofe HQ & diocese #cofestrategy docs I could find online

This information is sourced from the Diocese and CofE websites during May and June 2014.

Where I have added subjects which I couldn't find in the source documents and pages then these are in red font.

This is the 2nd weekly Wednesday post on #cofestrategy and the idea is you can use it as a prompt for possible subjects your strategy might cover.

The 1st post in this series was Strategy Headline Statements – a summary of key words each diocese uses.

The 2nd post  (this) was Strategy Subject Checklist - a summary of key subjects covered by diocese strategy.

The 3rd post was on Strategy Measures -  a summary of those used by the various diocese strategy.

The 4th post was on Strategy Best Practice - 10 thoughts to ponder.

The 5th post was a Summary of each diocese strategy with links to key documents and websites

The 6th post was a Selection of the graphics & analogies used in some of the diocese strategy

The 7th post was Theology/thinking behind some of the various cofe strategy - with links to documents
