Today we are publishing the final version of our Strategic Direction for the next five years.

Nearly ten months in the making, the priorities and focus areas in this document are the end result of a great deal of prayer and collaboration centred on two “events”.

The first was the work of the discernment group who prayerfully and diligently considered more than a hundred submissions from our community of faith about where the Lord might be inviting us to participate in his work.

This provided the framework for the second event; a day of discernment in which over a hundred people gathered to discuss the assets, barriers, and possibilities of four key areas.

The collected thoughts were then taken by the senior staff and key leadership and shaped into the directions that we are publishing in preparation for our AGM on December 4. At that meeting I will present the directions in more detail and move that we adopt them moving forward.

It’s an exciting time for us as we seek to step into what God has prepared for us.

Please have a look at the meeting documents and begin to prayerfully consider your place in what God has called us to; this is not for me or a few of us, but for us as a community of faith!
