Immeasurably More is the name for a process where St Barnabas is praying over and pondering what God is calling us to in the coming years. It was to have centred on a day on 28th March. After that, the aim was for the church council to formulate a ‘Mission Action Plan’, which would guide the church in the years ahead
The day on 28th March, sadly, had to be cancelled due to coronavirus, but Immeasurably More is continuing. The church council has agreed new plans. During the summer months we will consult as widely as possible across the church, whether that involves actually meeting, or meeting online and via the postal service. The PCC will meet in August to draw together these threads and a ‘Mission Action Plan’ will be in place by September.
Below is a revised programme for Immeasurably More, St Barnabas’ programme for future planning.
The new programme is designed to be run online, via Zoom. It will be led by the church staff team, but with plenty of room for discussion. Questionnaires will be sent out by post to members the church family who have no access to the internet or prefer to contribute on paper, so that everyone can feed in their thoughts. Please email email@example.com if you would like to contribute via the questionnaire.
The planned programme is as follows:
Wednesday 17 June, 7.30 to 9 pm ZOOM SESSION ONE: Who are we?
Wednesday 24 June, 7.30 to 9 pm ZOOM SESSION TWO: Where are we?
Wednesday 1 July 7.30 to 9 pm ZOOM SESSION THREE: Where are we going?
Based on these conversations, the PCC, wardens and staff team will oversee the drafting of a Mission Action Plan (MAP), which will be shared with the wider congregation in September.
Please keep this process in your prayers.
