Mission Action Planning is a central element in the new diocesan initiative Living God's Love. The initiative is an invitation to the people, parishes and deaneries, schools and chaplaincies to explore what it means to Live God's Love today by seeking to:
Go Deeper into God,
Transform Communities, and to
Make New Disciples.
Our Mission Action Plan is set out in this PDF.
In the plan we set out:
Our mission statement: To welcome everyone warmly and enable all to grow spiritually - nourished and transformed by reverent and relaxed worship and inspired to live and share God's love.
Our Vision Statement: To sustain and develop our vibrant all-age worshipping community, living out our faith in Jesus Christ in all we do, so that more and more people in our Parish are touched by his love
We developed our Action Plan from these three things we have seen about our parish and our world
An affluent communter town, something of a bubble
People live pressured and demanding lifestyles
The geography of the church building isolates us from the community
