The Mission Action Plan (MAP) is a document which sets out the parish’s priorities for the next few years.  The Parochial Church Council have been working on this over the past year and has considered carefully feedback from the wider congregation at the open events in the spring.  Next week (Sunday 8th October) the MAP will be published and we will be reflecting on it in the sermons at each service.  PCC members will be available to answer questions or receive comments.  Please do be praying that God would guide and help us as we serve him together here.
