About the 2017-18 Strategic Plan

Consultations with parishioners and external stakeholders began in early 2016. Meetings, interviews and the changing context underpin a report accepted by the annual Vestry in February 2017, which set out potential strategic directions.

Work Plan for October, 2017 to February, 2018

Work has continued since Vestry. An SP2.0 leadership team considered the vision, mission and principles. Sustainability is a cross-cutting theme. Work groups are developing potential actions on Worship, Learning and Community in October and November. Broad parish engagement begins on November 26th and will continue through January. A proposed Plan will be considered at Vestry on February 25, 2018.

Should you wish to participate in a work group or assist in any way, please contact the Rector’s Warden, Leonard Surges or the Reverend Gregor Sneddon,
