Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • No community focus.
  • Village doesn't know us.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • Responsibility for nourishing our personal faith - people know, but do nothing.
  • Stewardship of the building - so much to do.

Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

The church building to be a focal point for the community; so church building somewhere for them to feel comfortable to come.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • Getting to know people and vice versa.
  • Personal faith.
  • Plan church for group meetings, concerts, etc.

Goals (for the next year)

  • Magazine to be delivered to all, quizzes, etc.
  • 'Help lead a Christian life'. Sermon topics ... (bit flummoxed as to how to get people to do anything about their Christian life apart from Sunday morning services).
  • Building issues - finance issues.
  • Get the young involved.
  • Raising our church profile within our community.
