Benefice Vision for 2019

Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple,
they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts,
praising God and having the goodwill of all the people.
Acts 2:46

Like the early Church in Jerusalem, in Acts 2:42-47, as a benefice of four churches, we feel that we are well-supported by our villages.  We are and want to be welcoming churches who offer a Christ-like welcome to all we meet, who come through our doors.  Our vision is to be festival churches who offer apt, moving and memorable services at key times in church and family life - such as Christmas, Easter, Harvest, and Remembrance, and when children are born, couples meet and want to marry, and when loved ones die.  Like the early Church, we are seeking to grow in numbers and in our relationship with God.  Whilst we may sow the seeds of faith, it is God who makes them grow (1 Corinthians 3:6).

Our focus for 2019 is on:

►  Continuing to grow and develop our festival and special services
►  Enhancing our range of Sunday and mid-week services
►  Nurturing our faith and encouraging those seeking God
►  Being open and welcoming churches
