Progress

What progress are you celebrating since your previous MAP?

We have successfully returned to Church after the COVID interuption, and completed major building work.
During Covid our replacement services online were well attended, and Sunday School offered a online service that was able to reach more children ,that would normally physically attend service.

We have performed a successful Times and Talents stewardship resulting in a number of people recomiiting to ministry in church life.

We have re-established our Warmth Committe (Church Social life Team)

How far did you meet your previous priorities?
(1 star = Not at all → 10 stars = Done)

6 stars

Where has there been less progress than hoped for?

We engaged with various community groups such as Faith in Queens Park, Tibbs Foundation and Orchard, however we have been slow in producing Practical Outcomes.

We support School Faith tours that give School Children the ability to physical visit places of worship. Due to the Covid lock down we have not had an oppertunity to develop our program.
