Mission Action Plan
Our Mission Action Plan covers the three churches of the Twyford Area LEP (St Mary’s Twyford, St James’ Ruscombe and Twyford URC). It builds on our Mission, Vision and Values, which you can read about elsewhere in these pages.
St Nicholas’ Hurst are at a different stage in their planning and growth process and have therefore developed a Vision & Values statement tailored to their own situation.
The LEP Mission Action Plan (MAP) takes as its starting point our Vision: “Loved by Christ and Challenged to Grow”. In the plan, we focus on how God is calling us to grow in four particular areas of our life together:
- Grow in our personal discipleship
- Grow in our corporate discipleship
- Grow in our effectiveness as instruments of the kingdom in our communities
- Grow as congregations
One of the ways in which we will measure our progress against the plan is by seeing if we have grown in our ability, individually and as a community, to live out the 5 key gospel values identified in our vision process in 2012:
- Sacrificial Service and Giving
- Humility and Integrity
- Faithfulness and Trust
- Being rooted in the Word
- Unconditional Love
The Mission Action Plan was launched at our Annual Meeting in April 2015. The Leadership Team presented a report on the first year's progress at the 2016 Annual Meeting. You can download a copy of the 2016 presentation here.
The plan is a lengthy document designed to guide us through the next five years or so. Each year, the Leadership Team therefore selects some key objectives for us to focus on between now and our next Annual Meeting. You can download the list for 2016-17 here.
