Vision 2026: Growing Leaders

The Growing Leaders for Jesus Christ Vision 2026 theme has the four priorities listed below, with some questions for you to consider individually or as a church:

Supporting and equipping the current leadership for today's context

  • Have your clergy participated in the Ministerial Development Review process?
  • Do your licensed lay workers have up to date ministry agreements?
  • Do your leadership attend diocesan and other training events?

Enabling missional leadership in every Christian community

  • How many of your leadership team and congregation are confident in sharing their faith?
  • Have you sought advice from the Parish Mission Support and/or Diocesan Evangelism Team in running missional events? 

Liberating lay leadership for greater participation

  • How many lay people are actively involved in leading services/activities in your church/parish?
  • Do you have house/growth/cell groups that meet regularly and are lay led?

Creating the varied patterns of Sunday and weekday worship necessary to welcome all kinds of people, especially the newcomer

  • Have you reviewed your service times recently?
  • Have you considered holding services at times other than Sunday morning?
