PURLEY CIRCUIT MISSION POLICY 2021



The Purley Circuit exists to:

 

·        share the good news of Jesus Christ in word and action

·        encourage people into a closer relationship with and deeper understanding of God

·        serve the communities within its geographical area

·        enable the Circuit churches to flourish and to carry out their mission

·        safeguard and protect all at risk – vulnerable children, young people and adults 

 

These purposes will be met by:

 

·        strongly encouraging each church to set itself a strategy to fulfil these purposes, and to report progress in fulfilling their strategy annually to the Circuit Meeting

·        using and developing a diverse mix of people, lay and ordained, paid and unpaid, as directed by the Circuit Meeting, in support of these strategies

·        using the physical and financial resources of the Circuit in support of the strategies

·        working collectively together as a team, to support one another and make best use of skills and knowledge

·        building relationships with other Circuits and with churches of other denominations to share resources and to facilitate mission and service 

 

At present the Circuit will:

 

·        encourage the churches to seek vocations to the roles of Local Preacher and Worship Leader, and offer appropriate training to those who come forward

·        ensure that each church has a recognised person as chief person giving pastoral care, and that that person is enabled to have sufficient time available to support that church

·        seek to ensure that there are reasonably frequent opportunities for the churches to come together, for worship, for joint study and for social contact 

·        seek to ensure that young people are encouraged to meet with other young people from around the Circuit 



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