Our Vision

Our Vision

It’s time to rethink our Vision

Trusting that God can do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, by 2022 we aimed to be:

An Intergenerational Community, which is Loving like Jesus, Growing in Jesus, and Sharing Jesus.

Five years ago, we outlined Vision 2022. Little did we know that halfway through this vision, our world would be upended by COVID.

God has done immeasurably more than all we asked or imagined, with our church family now gathering in church facilities, digitally, and in homes.

Through 2020, 2021 and now 2022, we saw God providing new opportunities for his kingdom in the way that we gather for worship, and we framed our gatherings in three contexts: In Person, Digital, and Home Hubs.

As our previous vision has reached its end, we are now seeking God’s direction for the next 1,000 days.

We are asking you to partner with the staff and leadership teams in prayer, petitioning God and asking him to reveal his will to us.

Why 1,000 days?

The world has changed immensely in the past 1,000 days (July 2019). 1,000 days from now puts us at the start of 2025. To try and estimate where the world will be then is just as hard as it would have been to predict where we are now in July 2019. Simply put, COVID has shown us the reality that our human perspective is limited! 1,000 days gives us time to make steps towards change, while remaining constrained to a realistic timeline.

So, will you join us in prayer, asking God to reveal what’s next for his church in this place?

In Christ,
