This week the annual Synod of the Anglican Church of Sydney (the ‘parliament’ of our church) decided upon a new mission (‘Mission 2020’) to help focus us for the next five years. It include a vision, mission, values and priorities.
Our vision (what we dream to see happen) is:
To see Christ honoured as Lord and Saviour in every community.
Our mission (what we unite to do) states that:
We commit ourselves afresh, in the power of prayerful dependence on the Holy Spirit, to glorify God and love our neighbour by proclaiming the Lord Jesus Christ, calling people to repent and living lives worthy of him.
Our four key priorities are:
1. Reach all the lost in our Diocese with the life-giving gospel of Christ,
2. Deepen spiritual maturity among our members,
3. Equip our members to exercise their gifts,
4. Respond to the changing face of our society.
Let’s pray that this happens!
