Mission Action Plan 2018

Lady Chapel Window

Our Mission is to live and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Vision is that, through the Word of God and the Sacraments, we are empowered to love our neighbour, to know Christ and to make him known, that his kingdom will come

Our Mission Action Plan considers the activities of Holy Sepulchre Church in the short (0-6 months), medium (6-18 months) and long term (up to 3 years) to assist us in achieving our vision as outlined above.

We have divided our activity under the following 6 headings:

  1. Outreach Team Leader: Chris Groocock
    To engage as Christians and as members of Holy Sepulchre Church with the parish and town of Ashington.
  2. Finances Team Leader: Alison Orgill
    To be careful and generous stewards of our financial resources.
  3. Buildings Team Leaders: The Church Wardens
    To be conscientious guardians of our building, grounds and contents.
  4. Discipleship Team Leader: Jo Porter
    To grow and nurture our faith ad discipleship.
  5. Worship and Spirituality Team Leader: Chris Groocock
    To explore and consider the breadth and variation of worship styles and sprituality.
  6. Pastoral Care Team Leaders: Paulette Thompson and Lorna Beadle
    To love and care for our Neighbour.

This plan was accepted by the PCC on 5th April 2018.
