    Transforming Communities

Things seen about our local community

  • Our church attracts worshippers from far & wide, we always seek to welcome newcomers into a warm family.
  • Our church is at the heart of the town, and the parish includes residential, commercial and industrial areas. Sadly we do not have the human or financial resources to support the mission we might wish to offer.
  • God has made a good world, but the pace of life is often frantic and man's actions can make it a cruel and unjust world.

Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

To be actively developing a welcoming town-wide ministry; encouraging groups to use this large and beautiful church for services and major events. To be maintaining worship in a progressive, inclusive Anglo-Catholic tradition. To be still viable as a church with a Parish Priest. To have achieved a successful re-negotiation of the licence agreement with Stevenage Borough Council in 2016, after 40 years, for the use of the undercroft as the Town Museum; failing that to have been guided towards an alternative use which would still generate essential major revenue.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • To continue to extend a warm welcome to newcomers, actively helping them to follow and particiapte in worship.
  • To continue to provide a spiritual home for all our members in a well-maintained building.
  • To ensure that we can continue to provide for a Parish Priest.

Goals (for the next year)

  • To continue to support the Rector in our prayers and by increasing the number who undertake voluntary tasks in the life of the church, in a spirit of harmony.
  • To maintain good liturgy.
  • Actively to pursue the future of the Undercroft, its use and essential financial contribution to the Church.
  • To encourage realistic levels of giving from all Church members.
  • Following the success of the Bell Tower Restoration Project in 2011, to investigate the possibility of restoring the currently non-functioning electric carillon.
