Last Sunday Fr Alan preached about the importance of vision for a Church community. I thought I would expand a little on this theme. Stage two of our Development aims is almost complete, stage three is to be embarked upon this year. So we now have an opportunity to look at our ministry and mission for the next three years. I think we can usefully consider a number of areas. How best do we use our church buildings, including the hall for outreach and income? How best do we utilise our skills and passions for outreach to our community and the growth of this church community here at St Nicholas? How do we raise sufficient financial resources to continue our day to day work and enable development. The PCC will be meeting in late February for a day to discuss and to create a new Mission Action Plan. We would be grateful for your thoughts and your prayers at this important time as we all seek to discern God will for ourselves and his Church in the place.
