Our Vision 2021

In September 2016, St Helen’s and St Peter’s launched its current Vision to guide the churches for the five years to September 2021.

The parish continues to make steady progress in developing the priority areas set out in our Vision. There is a broad-ranging and ambitious set of objectives for 2020. Alongside those, we will be preparing to refresh the Vision at the beginning of 2021, expecting to include in it then some building and organisational projects in St Helen’s Church that will support our mission and Vision in the community. There will be consultation with the community and the congregations of both churches during 2020 to help prepare the next stage of the Vision.

To view our 2016 Vision document, please click here. Vision 2021 is set in the context of the Diocese of St Albans’ Vision, Living God’s Love.

Vision 2021 sets challenging goals and targets in each of its three key areas.  This is because we believe that God uses everyday folk in ordinary local churches to achieve extraordinary things.

Vision 2021 evolved out of the parish’s Vision for 2011 to 2016 after a careful review of the changes in our churches and community and the considerable progress that we had already made.  For an outline of the Vision for 2011-2016 and how we changed in response to it, please see pages 4 to 7 of our Vision document.

Please pray that as a Christian community we would be filled with the Holy Spirit and follow in the footsteps of Christ as we live and work for the Glory of God. And do play your own unique part as God leads us on this exciting journey of faith.
