Mission Action Plans

Mission, in Church terms is about God sending.  He is the God who loves His world and longs for people to know His love.  He sent His Son into the world, He sent His Holy Spirit.  We now join in God's Mission, as He sends us to be and bring good news. 

We've been developing some new Mission Action Plans for these 3 parishes.  On this particular page, you can see the summary for each parish.  Then, if you want to look at the specific action we look to take, or in more detail at the process of how we got here, please look at one of the documents attached.
