This is the biggest risk I have taken on this blog so far. I am going to ask a question looking for feedback. Of course for all I know no-one may be listening to me ask, and so I will get a bit of a land (it may turn out that 'to whom it may concern' actually concerns very few people). Nevertheless this is a serious request.
I have been challenged in recent months about communicating our vision. I know what sort of church I want us to be in Richhill Methodist, but it seems I haven't made it very clear (or consulted people about whether this is a shared vision). I am also planning for life beyond Richhill (in less than a year) and what sort of vision I would sell to a different congregation.
David Blevins has been commissioned to draw up a three-year plan for us, and I have been impressed by what I have seen. It centres on welcoming, witnessing and walking. I have added a link that may he of interest. I will not be blogging for two weeks but I will keep an eye on any comments that may be shared.
