Life: Our Purpose…
Our lives and purpose at St. Ouen’s Parish Church with St. George, are based on our Church Mission Statement:
Transforming Lives by Faith, Friendship and Following Jesus
As part of the Church of England in Jersey, we have expressed our Mission Statement through what is known as a Mission Action Plan. The Parish Church and St. George’s Church have produced separate Mission Action Plans, in accordance to their differing contexts and needs.
In order to achieve our mission purpose – Transforming Lives by Faith, Friendship and Following Jesus – both The Parish Church and St. George’s Church have adopted the core values and practices of Love 24/7 in their Mission Action Plans.
Love 24/7 (Prayer, Care, Share)
At the heart of both individual Mission Action Plans, is the commitment to purposely live out Love 24/7 through the themes of Prayer, Care and Share.
In addition, The Parish Church…
In addition to Love 24/7, the Parish Church Mission Action Plan has two further priorities:
1) Sowing Reaping Keeping
Sowing Reaping Keeping lays the foundation and creates the focus for local evangelism in the Parish Church through how we live out our faith in Jesus Christ with both words and actions.
2) Adapting the Parish Church building for the Future Needs of the Church Community
As a Church community, we are committed to finding ways in which we can all worship together in one building on a Sunday morning. We must ensure our building is fit for mission and ministry and accessible to all for today and tomorrow. More details will be given on any progress towards this priority in Spring 2019.
In addition, St. George’s Church…
In addition to Love 24/7, full details and priorities of St. George’s Church Mission Action Plan, can be found in St. George’s Mission Action Plan (MAP) small booklet.
