Our Vision

Radiating God’s love: transforming lives and communities


Underlying our parish vision is a vision of a God who loves, inspires, empowers and transforms us. To make any difference to the world around us we each need to be first and foremost disciples of Christ. That’s a journey we make at different speeds, at different times of our lives, but there is always encouragement, stimulation, and challenge to be had by meeting together for worship and  sharing of our lives and our stories. That’s what being Church is about: companions on the journey, or using St Paul’s image, the Body of Christ.


Being rooted in God, strengthened by our fellowship, we are compelled by the love of God to transform lives and communities around us, through loving service of our neighbour. This year our particular focus is on the development of Brambleton Hall, to make it a really useful community hub from which many life-transforming activities can be carried out. However, that doesn’t exclude the very many activities that are already going on, and we continue to hold those in prayer.

Our Vision Update 2016 leaflet gives more details of some highlights to celebrate and plans for the future, and our detailed Action Plan is also available for download. If there is any particular aspect of church life that you would like to get more involved with, please do speak to the clergy or churchwardens, who will be  delighted to link you up with the appropriate person or group, or visit our get involved page.
