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.
