Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • Pockets of new development within the village with very few 'affordable' homes.
  • Limited communication between established villagers and incomers.
  • Growing school and pre-school.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • Continual work with the limitations and opportunities of the building.
  • Congregation getting older.
  • Occasional offices remaining strong.

Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

We would like to be an active part of the community and a community resource, both with our building and with our church community.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • To make our building more user friendly for Church, school and parish events.
  • To find new ways of growing our faith.
  • To develop ministry within the community.

Goals (for the next year)

  • Remove the front pews, freeing a space for our worship and school assemblies.
  • Developing Church / School activities.
  • Developing a new Lenten strategy with Wilstead Church.
  • Working on our Welcoming strategy, especially at occasional offices.
  • Seeking to develop our Family Service.
