Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • Passers-by don't realise the church is here (end on to the road, so not seen).
  • People's perceptions are that church and God are irrelevant and old fashioned.
  • Need to help community see more of what we do, and see that faith is relevant.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • Need to help younger people's faith.
  • Need to increase knowledge and depth of faith.

Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

Vibrant and relevant church, thought provoking, representative of community.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • To be more visible in the community, including improving communication.
  • To seek to serve the community practically and spiritually.
  • To challenge our perceptions of faith and to challenge and deepen our faith.

Goals (for the next year)

  • Services to include visiting speakers, and themes more often.
  • Make church more visible - banner, events, magazine distribution.
  • Projects done together with the community (eg. gardens for children without any).
  • To improve the opportunities for communication within and outside of the church community.
