Archdeacon Sarah Moss is facilitating a self-review of the church by ourselves. The process gives us the opportunity to recognise both our strengths and challenges and to plan for future Mission and Ministry. The online survey can be completed within the next 10 days by going to the link www.beyondconsulting.co.nz/OnlineServices/Survey/mu5/mu5.htm
We will gain the most benefit if the survey is completed by as many people as possible. The information is collated by a professional company and sent to the Archdeacon who will return later in the year and conduct two workshops to enable us all to review the findings and put some future planning in place. PLEASE BE INVOLVED AND FILL IN THE SURVEY as it will give us a snapshot that will help us identify the realities of the present in order to facilitate forward thinking and planning. Thank you!
