A Vision for Christ Church for the next 5 years
1 – A Growing Congregation.
That the Christ Church congregation will have at least doubled in size in the next 5 years.
Where that growth is first and foremost through people coming to faith in Jesus Christ through the faithful preaching and teaching of God’s Word.
2 – An Evangelising Congregation
Where we are increasingly a people who have a passion for the Gospel and, fully convinced that man’s greatest need is that of salvation, are all equipped play our part in that work.
3 – A Maturing Congregation
Where we are all growing up in our salvation as we feed on the pure milk of the word - passionate about holiness and discipleship and so more and more are becoming a people that is "blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation shining like stars in the universe..."
4 – A Caring Congregation
Where we all adorn the gospel by our obedience to Christ’s command to love one another and so carry one another’s burdens; where we show Christ’s love in the world by loving our neighbour’s as ourselves.
5 – A Praying Congregation
Where our prayer meetings are at least double the size that they are now.
6 – A Church with a growing Children’s / Youth Work
Where our children’s and youth ministry begins to flourish in a way that we haven’t seen before.
7 – A Giving Congregation
where we are able to meet our own costs but also support the mission of the church elsewhere with the generosity shown to us.
