Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • Communication - need to communicate better with congregation and be more aware of world issues.
  • Links - we have lots of links but we need to better understand the people and organisations we have links with. We should develop greater depth and value them more.
  • Growing population - town is growing rapidly, a larger community to serve and work with.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • All the different groups within the church need to develop a shared vision of the whole church.
  • We are already very active and have to avoid being too busy. Need to focus on the right things.
  • We are already a broad and growing church and would like to continue to grow and broaden further.

Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

St Andrew's Church; worshipping God with joy, growing in faith, serving with love, and welcoming all.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • Ensure the whole church owns the vision statement.
  • Encourage everyone to grow in faith, in both the church community and wider community.
  • Develop a wider and deeper sense of welcome, fellowship and belonging, involving everyone.
