Church Family News Extra (CFNX) is our monthly leaflet containing details of services for the month, key news items, a focus on our Mission Partner for the month, PCC notes and 'The Leader', a topical and thought-provoking front-page article. CFNX is designed to be shared with the whole church family, their friends and neighbours, and can be freely downloaded from here.
Parochial Church Council (PCC) meets in May, June, July, September, October, November, January, February and March. The Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) takes place in April.
Draft minutes are available here shortly after each meeting. These are replaced with the confirmed minutes once they are approved, normally at the next PCC meeting.
Minutes are available for the five most recent meetings. Minutes of earlier meetings are archived and can be made available, where it is appropriate to do so. Please contact the PCC Secretary in the first instance.
Our Purpose Statement reads: "We exist to worship a loving God, to express that love in Christian Community, to draw people to Jesus, to build them up as his followers and to equip them for service for the good of the world."
Our Purpose Statement is based on what we believe to be the five purposes God has for each of us: worship, fellowship, evangelism, discipleship and service. From these, the principles that shape what we do start with how we reach out to our Community. They move to how we help them become part of the Crowd, and then how we can help them move to the Congregation. From there we want to help people become part of the Committed and then, finally, part of the Core.
Ed, our Youth Minister, provides an update from time to time to tell us all about what the various youth groups have been involved with. Where appropriate permission has been gained from those concerned, these updates - and one or two other useful resources - can be downloaded from here.
