Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • World in Crisis: widespread economic downturn, increase in global armaments, climate catastrophe affecting many, inequality.
  • Our Society and the Church: facing immense change, resources stretched to, in places, breaking point.
  • Our Parish: on edge of deanery, surrounded by water. Consists of two different populations - old village & new estates.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • Spirituality is about honesty & reality - we try to face realities. Strengths include being a loving, supportive community.
  • Have insufficient funds for the upkeep of the church, building takes enormous amount of time, money, energy.
  • Facing deanery reorganisation - 11/11 letter received to advise 'expect Renhold will share a priest'.

Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

For the Church to be known as a sacred space with the Eucharist at its heart. Where we can question and explore our faith and so grow in love and be able to face change with confidence; where we are known throughout the village as a supportive accepting loving community, a resource open to all.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • To continue to deepen our faith and spirituality.
  • To continue to serve the community.
  • To maintain ourselves financially.

Goals (for the next year)
