Our vision is that we’re passionate to know God and to make God known. Simple, right?!
OUR VISION (AND BUDGET) FOR 2023
If you’ve been with us at any point in New Year 2023 you’ll probably have heard us talk about 2023 being a year of preparation for the future. While we do that, one thing that we have kept coming back to is the feeling that our vision – passionate to know God and to make God known – is really, really crucial for us.
We’ve explained this more in our vision (and budget) booklet which you can find below. If you’re part of our church family we ask you to prayerfully consider our vision again (or for the first time if you’re new here) but also to look at our budget and, again prayerfully, to give in accordance with the resources with which God has blessed you. We realise that your personal circumstances will affect how you are able to give. If this is a difficult time for you financially, please do not feel under any obligation – we feel you should only give out of what you have.
