Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • Many people in our parish / 'catchment area' are asset rich and time poor.
  • There is both a lack of and a longing for real community.
  • Concentration of artistic / cultural / musical networks and also young families.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • The importance of our city-centre location is shaping our ministry.
  • The unusually high numbers of visitors, newcomers and occasional offices that we receive - vital importance of welcome.
  • The complex make up of our church - 4 Sunday congregations and other stakeholders - need to look at how we build community.
