Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • The parish has no shops and no school.
  • There are a number of small houses in the parish and people tend not to stay very long in these.
  • Sunday morning is very busy - children's activities, shopping etc. Some residents go outside the village to worship.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • Our Church has a very small congregation.
  • We find it difficult to encourage the rest of the village to get involved in the Church.
  • We worry that we might be the last generation to use this Church.

Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

As a happy friendly Church, which is used by the community, hopefully growing towards God and deeper in faith.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • To reach out to the whole community.
  • To involve more of the community in regular worship and prayer.
  • To use our Church and develop services that are relevant in this rapidly changing world.

Goals (for the next year)

  • Promote and grow the 'Sunday Afternoon' service.
  • Improve communication between the Church and village.
  • To organise an event that links Church and village.
  • Finish the equipping of the children's area in the base of the bell tower.
  • Have the Church open at weekends.
