Our MISSION STATEMENT (in the previous section) expresses what we want to BE. It sets out what’s important to us and the way we want to operate. Our Values document (in the next section) looks at those operational principles in a little more detail.
But our VISION STATEMENT is about what we want to DO. It expresses the practical and concrete goal towards which we are proactively working. It describes our desired view of the future, directs our planning and channels our energies. It is a dream that we are determinedly working to bring into reality. This Vision Statement was agreed by a meeting of the church members in 2015 after more than 12 months of discussion and preparation. It talks about establishing new churches, but this is not a religious vision. It is a vision for the creation of servant communities of indigenous people that will be places of hope, belonging and grace in their respective neighbourhoods.
It is the vision of Bodmin Road Church to continue to transform the HU7 area with the message and love of Jesus, through the establishing of new communities of Christian worship and practical ministry, in the expectation that they will develop into stable churches impacting their own neighbourhoods.
