2017 sermon series on our vision: 'The Vision Thing'
In 2015, a group representing the Partnership went away for a retreat day together, to try and discern God’s leading for us as a team of churches. We spent much time reflecting together on Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well in John 4, and sharing our hopes and dreams for mission and ministry in Walton. Out of this came a united vision which we sense could inspire us for the next few years:
Seeking sharing and celebrating the abundant life of God
At this time of change and new opportunity, perhaps now is a key moment for us to dwell together on what that vision could mean for each of us: as individuals, as churches, as a Partnership. What would it look like to commit ourselves fully to being a church which offers abundant life? Which seeks it for ourselves, shares it with others, and celebrates it whenever and wherever we find it? Our hope and prayer is that 2017 will begin with a bang, and that God will do great things among us as we commit together to partner with God in bringing the abundant life of his kingdom to our communities.
