Vision – 2020 & beyond
We want to reach everyone who lives, works or studies in Clifton Parish with the Good News of Jesus, so that they can come into a living relationship with Him, proving clear stepping-stones of faith for everyone. We will give everyone the opportunity to grow in the likeness of Jesus through our outreach, our worship, our love shown in action. We want to see the numbers attending all our services grow as people are drawn together in fellowship and community.
We want to attract and disciple large numbers of all ages, from young children to senior citizens, through activities which are
Rooted in the Word of God – Centred on the Son of God – Open to the Spirit of God – Biblically Strong – Prayerfully Committed – Communally United – Missionally Courageous.
We want to continue to promote the worship of God through a variety of Sunday services which are accessible to all kinds of people, both those with long-standing Church backgrounds, or with little, or none. To constantly review our concern for all people living in the Parish in practical ways so that they are welcomed, drawn into our fellowship, brought to faith in Jesus Christ, shown how to be His disciples, taught Biblical truths, their gifts identified and used, helped to grow to maturity, and sent out in service of God and others, living and witnessing in the power of the Holy Spirit. To acknowledge perpetually our dependence upon the blessing of God by seeking personal and corporate spiritual renewal in which prayer and the study of the Scriptures are priorities.
Our mission is to proclaim and demonstrate in word and deed, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit. This is in order that God our Father is glorified, and His rule extended, in us as individual believers, among us as a fellowship of disciples and through us in our Parish and further afield, in our country and overseas.
To go and make disciples (Mt 28: 19). Our purpose is to lead people to Jesus to become part of His family, teach them to worship the Lord, help them to grow spiritually, and equip them to use their gifts in the church and in the world.
