PURLEY CIRCUIT MISSION POLICY 2015

The Purley Circuit exists to share the good news of Jesus Christ in word and action, and to hold together and enable the 7 individual churches of the Circuit as they carry out this mission.

The policy will be carried forward in this way:-

        by using a diverse mix of staff resources, as judged necessary by the Circuit Meeting.

        by aiming to have the equivalent of three full time stipendiary ministers in the circuit.

        by using the staff as a team, that meets regularly to support each other and work together on projects where this is advantageous.

        by establishing a Circuit Leadership team consisting of the ministerial staff members, the Circuit Stewards, the Circuit Treasurer and the Circuit Meeting Secretary – who will advise the Circuit Meeting and take action on its behalf between meetings.

        by applying Circuit resources (including staff) as the Circuit Leadership Team decides, with priority being given to service and evangelism.

        by recognising pastoral links in the making of the preaching plan.

        by seeking to make best use of the talents of Local Preachers for the good of the Circuit and the churches.

        by encouraging local churches to find, train and use Worship Leaders, or to find other means whereby worship can be arranged and led locally.

        by offering events which supplement what each local church is able to offer – including shared evening worship, groups studying theology, youth activities etc.

        by encouraging local churches to offer meetings for prayer and bible study

        by urging local churches to find suitable ways to engage with their local communities in service and evangelism – while recognising that the pattern of such activities will differ from church to church

        by requiring each church to report to the Circuit on its life and mission once a year

       by building relationships with neighbouring Circuits to share resources and facilitate mission.

 

This policy will be reviewed and revised as necessary but at least every 3 years.
