Thanks to all who attended all or part of our Rebuilding Day on Sunday 19 March. The day was important and significant as we look to make the next steps on our journey together as a church.
The day started with corporate worship. Thanks to all the musicians who gave their time, not just on the day but in preparing during the week. Paul Harvey then delivered a message based on the prophetic word God gave to Haggai, before outlining how our vision statement has been tweaked (see below) and introducing three core objectives designed to help see our vision become reality.
Who Transform Morden and Beyond
Following this Ruth Merriman provided feedback on the recent Foundation sessions giving us an overview of the findings. A copy of Ruth’s slides are available to download.
The three core objectives – Growing a vibrant base, Growing people, Growing together in mission – were introduced by different members of the Leadership Board before they led discussion groups around each of these areas. These discussion groups enabled us to explore how these objectives can work out in practice. It was obvious from the discussions that clarification is required on some of the language and terms being used. Over the coming weeks we will be communicating more information that will hopefully bring more clarity on these objectives.
Following lunch all present were invited to participate in an act of unity. Each person was given a small candle and invited to light their candle from a large candle displayed at the front. This symbolic act signified commitment to the vision and to working out the objectives in practice.
If you would like to contribute any feedback on the core objectives please email the Leadership Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
