Priorities of the Board for Church & Society (BCS) shape and direct our missional activity:-
“Our priorities are based on a holistic understanding of contextual mission including social justice, reaching out to those unconnected to church, community engagement, promotion of the gospel, discipleship and engagement with issues in wider society.”
The detailed priorities are available here: BCS Priorities 2016
