Being with God – being with others – being with the rest of creation
The vision is of a Parish which seeks to value and affirm the gifts of all people and to provide a place of prayer, worship and welcome for all in the Parish. The desire is to develop ‘centres of excellence’ both of worship and of community involvement and use. The need is for the our Churches to recognise their interdependence and yet value their independence; to try to strike a balance between acknowledging the value of our common life, yet also valuing the qualities and style each of the Churches, similar to how the Trinity interacts. The priorities for the Parish are building up the life of each Church and of the Parish and looking at how each Church needs to be developed as a resource for its local community. Each Church has a potential that is being explored which helps fulfil the need to build up the spiritual life of the whole Parish and to encourage people in their journey of faith.
