St Giles' Vision



We aim to be a community rooted in Christ, sharing God’s love with all

In 5 years’ time our dream is to see the following:

> Significant growth in numbers and spiritually with lives being changed as a result of people encountering God’s love
> Regular and varied corporate prayer, together with teaching on prayer
> Worship that changes us
> All members committed to giving, meaning we are able to spend money on mission and give away at least 10% of income
> Majority of members in small groups, caring for and supporting one another, growing in discipleship, inviting others and reaching into the local community
> Even better links with the schools
> St Giles a place of fun, friendship and support for the local community, a hub in Desborough
> Youth work expanding
> Phase 3 of reordering completed
> Social media presence working well
> Involvement by all, including young people

Our Growth Action Plan for 2018-19, as we work towards seeing that dream to become a reality, is to focus on 7 targets:

> Establish a monthly prayer meeting and have a teaching focus on prayer

> Three new discipleship (house) inc Alpha groups, in addition to those already running

> Develop and if necessary change our existing youth work to ensure it is effective and contributing towards young people’s discipleship

> Improve our connections with the local community paying particular attention to our developed use of social media to help enable this

> Establish Bereavement Ministry by January 2019

> Love in Action – begin to explore a plan for debt counselling service

> Church lighting project completed with necessary monies raised by December 2018. Improved AV plans submitted and financed
