Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

We will be a dynamic, hospitable, growing church, welcoming everyone, and where all ages can grow in faith and receive spiritual support. We will use all our resources and talents for loving service to the community, both locally and globally.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • To provide an opportunity to develop and nurture our faith and spiritual growth.
  • To provide opportunities for our community to learn about our Christian faith by making worship more accessible.
  • To reach out by taking opportunity to build relationships with those who visit our church for occasional or specific services.

Goals (for the next year)

  • Within the next 12 months we will review the content of the newly established Evening House Group.
  • We will over the next 12 months, increase numbers attending Sunday school by reviving activities, particularly associated with seasonal celebrations such as the Good Friday craft morning.
  • We will increase the numbers of young people attending church by targeting our Lower Schools with the emphasis of encouraging 'bring a friend'.
  • We will set up Worship Group, after the next APCM, to look at our services to ensure they are accessible to all and offer varied forms of worship.
  • We will estbalish, after the APCM, a pastoral group to build relationships and encourage those who visit our church for seasonal and occasional services, to return and attend other services.
