CREATING SPACES FOR OUR COMMUNITY TO ENCOUNTER JESUS.
After much prayer and consideration, St Marys Island Church has identified a purpose statement which we believe to be tailored to our present environment. It is "CREATING SPACES FOR OUR COMMUNITY TO ENCOUNTER JESUS". It represents a changing church now looking to go into the community rather than waiting for the community to come to the church. Some church members are already involved in the community (eg the Friday youth club at the community centre) but we now will be looking for other ideas involving small manageable steps where people are comfortable. Our new purpose statement will help us identify what we as a church might undertake and what we might not undertake.
