During 2010, the congregation of St John’s Church engaged in a process to clarify what we felt God was calling us to be and to do as a church. Through questionnaires, a vision day away together and working on developing actions thereafter, we have agreed the following vision to guide us over the next phase of our journey as a church.
The community of Christ in Muxton, rooted in the scriptures, for all people
· God and his will for us
· to serve the community
· wholeness and spiritual growth for one another
We long to see:-
· Christians growing as disciples, passionate for God
· A community of faith growing in maturity and numbers
· lives changed and made whole by Christ
· the church known and loved as people of this place, who love the people of this place
We agreed four Priorities :
1. To restart Alpha - after an ‘Alpha taster’ for the congregation in January 2011, we will start our next Alpha course in May 2011.
2. To seek to establish some form of alternative worship services - a significant proportion of adult members of the congregation are attending a six week course run by the Diocese of Lichfield to help us think through what this might look like.
3. To develop a Prayer/Pastoral network - after open discussions with members of the congregation, this is now being implemented.
4. To increase our engagement with the community - we hope to have contact with every household over the next few years. In temperatures well below freezing, church members went carol singing around the parish in December.
