Vision & strategy

The church is more than bricks and mortar buildings. It is a community of people who, together, live in relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

There’s a church at the heart of every community and each one puts its faith in action. Our churches run food banks and night shelters, cafes and sports clubs, organise community fayres, and so much more.

Just as importantly, we serve over a hundred church schools and academies in the area – almost a quarter of the primary schools in Norfolk and Waveney – and over 13,500 pupils.

Our Mission Strategy encourages churches to form growth plans, because when the church grows everyone benefits. Entitled ‘More than we can imagine’, it identifies four ‘streams’ of work – Listen, Celebrate, Imagine and Empower – to focus our resources to accomplish more than we can ask or imagine, as we say together “your kingdom come, Lord”.
