Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

The 'Making Disciples of Jesus Christ' Vision 2026 theme has the three priorities listed below, with some questions to consider individually or as a church:

Knowing the Scriptures better through reading, teaching, preaching and study

  • Does your church have 'house/growth' groups that meet during the week for bible study and prayer? 
  • How often do you read your Bible? 
  • Did you know that Whalley Abbey has a Sprirituality Programme? 


Praying with greater depth and urgency for the Kingdom of God to come

  • Are you praying for five of your friends/family/colleagues/neighbours to know Jesus for themselves?
  • Does your church support the annual Thy Kingdom Come prayer initiative between Ascension Day and Pentecost? 


Giving generously of our time, talents and money to the cause of Christ

  • Are you helping out in the life of your church practically and through prayer?
  • How is the level of your financial giving to the work of you parish?
