PRIORITIES FOR NORTH LANCASHIRE CIRCUIT FROM APRIL 2015 TO AUGUST 2019
These priorities are based on the assumption that we have sound financial management and administration. They also take account of the earlier work done during reconfiguration on structure and communication as well as the Possible Futures document to look at what we have achieved and which ideas are still worth pursuing.
Use our ministers to equip the church to develop discipleship and to encourage the growth of faith, leadership and commitment across the circuit. It is only by making disciples that the churches grow rather than decline.
Look at models of ministry and pastoral care required across our diverse circuit to see how we can meet the needs in our churches and the communities we serve of children and families, older people and those living in rural areas.
Developing the role and function of IT possibilities and potential - there's a lot of travelling attached to our circuit - could we work 'smarter' and we need more effective communication across the circuit.
Continue to develop three circuit mission focuses of rural ministry and projects at Cornerstone and the GYM.
