Thinking about our life today as a Church Community and planning for the future is all part of the Mission Action Planning (MAP) process. As part of our work we have put together this statement which we hope brings together the Mission and Vision we all share in.
We seek to be a mission driven Church, sharing God's love in order to serv e the whole community: Endeavouring to support, cherish, nurture, educate, enlighten and facilitate our personal growth and by doing so introduce others to Christ and the Christian Faith.
A prayer of St Ignatius of Loyola
Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous; teach me to serve You as You deserve; to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to ask for reward save that of knowing I am doing Your Will.
A prayer for Lammastide
O God, your Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: open the eyes of our faith, that we may see him in his redeeming work, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
