Goals for growth spirituality community mission We will put Home Groups at the heart of Christ Church’s mission and ministry, so that every member is intentionally growing in their relationship with God and seeking to know God’s purpose for their lives. We will ensure all leaders are envisioned, encouraged and equipped, and are looking to grow new leaders so that the groups can multiply effectively. We will continue to extend the pastoral care network to embrace the whole church community, looking in particular to strengthen Christian Family Life by offering Marriage and Parenting Courses. We will develop our partnership with home and school so that children and their families are inspired by Christian values and God’s vision for humanity. . We will work towards opening a Debtcounselling Centre in the parish so that more people in our community can experience the transforming love of God through practical action. administration We will creatively develop our buildings so that they can be more effectively used as a resource for outreach and service to the community, and will better accommodate the needs of a growing church in the 21 st Century. This will be done ways that reflect God’s care for creation.

Teams Forum Members: Teams Forum • Representatives or ‘points of contact’ from each team • Leadership Team Purpose: • Communication forum for Church Teams and Leadership Teams • Support for Church Teams • Networking for sharing of experiences, best practice, etc. • To meet other key members or the church and enjoy fellowship • Teams would meet separately with their Leadership Team point of contact to work together on their expression of the up, in & out. • It is envisaged that the Teams Forum would meet 2/3 times a year
Why do it this way? • Empowers team leaders and teams • Gives teams autonomy and freedom of expression • Promotes more creative thinking • Provides a structure for ongoing support and accountability • Defines responsibilities for team leaders • Keeps core values at the heart of each individual and team • Builds on the overall dynamic of ‘up, in, and out’ • Unifies the fragments of the church under one vision
