vision 2017Our Vision for 2017 

In 2017, we will ask God to help us nurture a culture of prayer, encouragement, adventure and growth!

The start of a new year inevitably brings a raft of resolutions and recommendations for right living.
For the last few months, the Elders and Ministry Team of the church have been considering our vision for the coming year.
This vision centres on four things – prayer, encouragement, adventure and growth!

Prayer

How is God calling us as a church to pray in the next year?
When we pray we want to be specific, full of faith and attentive to God’s voice.

Encouragement

In what ways can we as a church encourage one another in the year ahead?
The word encouragement literally means to give someone courage. We want to be a church that gives courage both in word and deed

Adventure

What adventure do we believe God is calling us to?
When we go on an adventure we are often called to take risks. We want to step out in faith and dependence on God in a risky but not reckless way.

Growth

How might God be calling us to grow?
Growth is not purely about numerical size and reach. We believe a healthy church is a church that is growing in breadth, depth and unity.


These four areas have implications for us both as individuals and as a church.
We hope you will join us as we seek to make the above a reality by listening to the Father, following the example of the Son and keeping in step with the Holy Spirit!
Please get in touch if you would like to know more or contribute further.
