Growth Action Plan
The primary aim of Growth Action Planning is to help each church in the Diocese to focus on what God longs for it to be like in 5 years time. The church then decides on the priorities it will set for the coming year. This is to ensure that each church uses its energy and talents wisely. It follows from this that the most important thing in GAP is to discern God’s calling for your church and this means that prayer is central to all that we do in GAP. For more details please see our Diocese's GAP website page.
THE GAP PRAYER
'Lord Jesus Christ, you inspire and command your church to make disciples:
may our church be a joyful and vibrant community of welcome,
worship and service,
spreading hope to those around us and drawing others to the fire of your love;
may your Spirit be at work through our Growth Action Planning,
helping us to catch a vision for your church
and to serve you faithfully,
to your glory and honour'
