At the start of each year we spend a Sunday reflecting on the vision we believe God has given us as a church, and how we plan to express this through what we do in the coming year and beyond. We spend the following Sunday thinking about how we give to God's work through prayer, service and, especially, our money.
We believe God has called us to be a church with an open door, reaching out with God's love and power, helping one another live for Jesus. In 2018, alongside preaching and teaching about discipleship in ways that help people live for Jesus in the whole of life, consolidating and developing further our work with children and young people, making worship and prayer accessible and engaging for all ages, carrying out groundwork for our building project and running an appointment process to discover who God is calling to be our next Vicar, our focus will be on identifying more people to serve and lead across many areas of church life, and on equipping and encouraging those who already serve and lead.
We produced leaflets to accompany these Sundays, and you can access them here:
