We are looking to work with our new Minister to grow the Church by:
- getting to know the parish
- welcoming new residents to the parish
- encouraging growth in worship
- being part of an editorial team, making St Patrick's Page quarterly paper appealing to the wider local community and thereby spreading the mission of the Church.
- promoting Baptisms, Church Weddings and Blessings
- using the Church for activities central to the parish
- offering courses such as those arranged for Lent
How We See Ourselves
- With Anglican and Methodist roots, we see ourselves as one very united congregation
- We willingly support others in the community be they Baptists, Presbyterians, URC, Roman Catholics or none of these!
- We strive to be welcoming and compassionate.
- We consider ourselves to be open-
- We support the primary school, providing funds and having three members of the PCC represented on the governing body.
- We have sound administration and financial management, supported by willing volunteers.
- We have excellent music, a gifted director, who greatly assists our worship, and who arranges a monthly concert programme that attracts outsiders to the Church.
- We have strong support from non Church goers in helping care for the fabric of the Church and grounds.
- We have significant support from the Friends of St Patrick's, especially with fund raising initiatives.
