For Such A Time As This

Six priorities have emerged where we can equip our circuits, churches and members to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ, which is their calling and our calling:

  • GROWING DISCIPLES lies at the heart of our strategy, as a bedrock of supportive accountable, deepening relationship with each other and with Christ.
  • This leads to PASSIONATE CONTEXTUAL WORSHIP and TRANSFORMING MISSION for such a time as this.
  • Particular support is needed to rediscover confidence in SHARING STORIES for such a time as this.
  • We will help set disciples free for a life of worship and mission by SIMPLIFYING PROCEDURES and expert support to make their PROPERTIES FIT FOR MISSION for such a time as this.

We have listened to your call for change through spiritual renewal; keenness to listen, learn and discover our vocation; with ready access to yokes which fit well; being intentional in our mission but flexible to changing circumstances.We must be people of resilient hope, but not afraid of honest lament and grief. We have seen a desire to recognise ourselves as a Spirit-filled movement.

We deliberately use words such as growth, flourishing, excellence and confidence. But not out of ignorance of the trends in membership and other obvious challenges facing our churches, or of the communities in which we reside. Instead we affirm the call of the 3Generate manifesto to "Be Courageous".

For such a time as this reflects the willingness expressed even before coronavirus at many levels of our Connexional church to tackle longstanding inertia and take holy risks.
