The Diocesan Vision underpins all that we do as a Partnership of three Parishes. We strive to do what we can together as a single family of God while respecting our individual parish differences in building up the Kingdom of God.
“Listen, I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you, and eat with you and you with me”. (Rev. 3:20)
This Word of God challenges us as a Partnership of Parishes to:
- Worship God
- Proclaim the Gospel
- Serve everyone with love
Building on this vision we are encouraged to be rooted and grounded in a loving relationship with Christ and His Church.Formation in this relationship must undergird everything we say and do as parishes.To this end we need to commit ourselves, clergy and laity alike, to formation together as the People of God in this locality.It is our responsibility to build up Christ’s Church. It starts with each one of us.
