Priorities for Action Spring 2019 update

The Circuit Leadership Team have been reviewing our Circuit’s five year strategy document,        Priorities for Action.  We are about half way through this 5 year period so it’s a good to time to reflect on what has worked well and see what still needs addressing.  Copies have gone out to all Circuit Meeting members and will be distributed to local Church Councils and congregations.

We will discuss the update at the next Circuit Meeting in June and also encourage all our churches to add it to their local Church Council agendas.

You can download a copy here and also from the RESOURCES, Forms & Policies tab on the website.
