Church of England Diocese of Manchester Newton Heath

Our Mission Action Plan

As a member of North Manchester Deanery, a Pilot Deanery, we are in the vanguard of those parishes developing and devising a plan for Mission.

These are our Vision Values:

• To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom

• To teach, baptise and nurture new believers

• To respond to human need by loving service

• To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation

• To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth

By God’s grace we will build on our strengths and strengthen our weaknesses. As we work towards those Marks, we reflect on our identity as a community gathered in Jesus’ name; we discern our role and mission within North Manchester Deanery and beyond.

We recognise our roles as the living stones of The Church which, in words attributed to William Temple “is the only society that exists for the benefit of those who are not its members.”

We recognise that this is a formative document.
