Mission and Growth


If we dream of the church and world in 10/20 years time, what do we see?

Can we dare see a good cross section of our community gathering together in worship each week, confidently relating to the needs of children and young people, to the poor and marginalised and growing daily in the love of Christ?  Or do we see something else?

We have been working with Canon Judy Hirst, Local Church Growth and Development Adviser for our Diocese of Durham to attempt to answer this question.
