God For All Vision Refresh Meeting

The five year God For All vision, adopted by the Salvation Army, Methodist Church, United Reformed Church and Church of England in Cumbria in 2015, was that: By 2020 every person in Cumbria of all ages and backgrounds will have an opportunity to discover more of God and God's purpose for their lives, so that they will discover more of Jesus and the Good News and become followers of Jesus within a Christian community. With 2020 almost upon us, the Diocese with its ecumenical partners are seeking to refresh the God For All Vision, and are inviting churches and individuals to help review the current strategic plan and identify priorities for the 2020 to 2025 strategic plan. With this in mind, we would like to invite you to attend a special workshop that we will be running on Monday 25th November at 7.30pm in the Parish Centre. The workshop will last 90 minutes, and will be led by Kerry Roughton, a member of St James, and the ‘God For All Management Officer’, co-ordinating the day to day programme management of the God for All strategy and activities.
