Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • The villages have many community assets - shops, schools, country park, village hall, clubs & organisations.
  • Residents main concerns were crime, traffic and transport; needs identified as youth activities and support for carers.
  • The schools are very outward looking, environmentally aware, and support charities including the CTHC Shoe Box Appeal.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • Churches are actively involved in worshipping, studying and working together on a regular basis.
  • All three churches see themselves as friendly & welcoming, but members are reluctant to invite people to services & events or to look at mission.
  • There is a need for more community/social events to enable people to get to know one another and involve new people.

Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

A lively group of churches, welcoming, caring and outgoing; working closely together with activities for all age groups. Being seen and respected as a group affecting the wider community by their lives and actions.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • To grow both the faith of our members and others in the community.
  • To continue to respond to perceived needs of both individuals and the wider community.
  • To be more outward looking in our welcome.

Goals (for the next year)

  • To extend our welcome by looking at the provision for visitors.
  • To continue to develop the new initiative of having a social programme.
  • To encourage the St Peter's Friends Group.
  • To encourage attendance and participation of families in services and events.
  • To run the Start course and confirmation classes.
