Thy Kingdom Come – Novena
A worldwide call to prayer in the “Novena” between Ascension Day (25th May) and Pentecost (4th June). Collect one of the prayer booklets and use it daily.
As we prepare for the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, please come and use the prayer stations that will be set out in the church during the Novena. They may lead you into new ways of praying, or build upon the ways that you have used for years.

Mission Action Plan – MAP
We know that any church‟s MAP will build from that church‟s “Purpose statement” and “Vision statement”. We drew up our Vision statement with the help of the (former) Dean in a two-fold Vision Day back in 2013. But what is our purpose – our reason for being here? We are told that the way to consider this is not to see it from our own, individual point of view, but to try and see it from God‟s point of view. So, with that in mind, complete this sentence (in no more than 10 words):
Our purpose is to . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Let‟s all put our suggestions on the board at the back. See what others have written, let that guide your own thinking, then write down what you think is a better statement. By helping each other, we will gradually improve the statement until it is the very best possible. It is our last chance to work on this before our AGM!
