What is Our vision for Chatteris?
our Development Action Plan includes the following:
1. Nurture a confident people of God
2. Develop a healthy church by developing a wider team of Lay Ministers
3. Serve our community for the common good with family support, the Food Bank, pastoral teams and a Parish Nurse
4. Re-imagine and upgrade our building as a welcoming venue for community groups and larger town gatherings
5. Target resources for areas which need extra support
One of our values is to be generous: We love to serve others and give of our time, talents and treasure! We are generous because God is generous. We invest in God's kingdom because it is bringing wholeness and healing throughout our town and beyond. This is good news for the poor. We see lives being transformed and people changed. As a Church community we pray to be generous and visible people of Jesus Christ as we look for God's kingdom to come in Chatteris.
If you come along regularly or if you’re new around here, would you consider joining us in being generous too?
