  • Lots of people visiting, but not integrating into the church.

Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

A community of LIGHT gathered around mission and empowered by prayer; living LIGHT wherever we are! - As a 'lighthouse' helping people to navigate their way to a life following Christ. - A community of people who love God and love each other; embracing the broken, the lost and the hurting.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • Develop leadership capacity and create a network of mission shaped small groups and supportive nurture groups.
  • Create a team focused on schools work.
  • Offer parenting skills to the church and wider community.

Goals (for the next year)

  • Launch 4 mission focused groups - gathered around mission and empowered by prayer.
  • Launch 2 nurture groups - to enable newcomers / people new to faith to integrate.
  • Launch 1 leaders huddle to support the leaders of the groups above.
  • Send two mission teams overseas per year to provide a global focus of humanity.
  • Run a sucessful Alpha course once a year.
