The Wilford Peninsula Team Ministry, in Suffolk, UK is undertaking a major review of mission and ministry across the whole of the peninsula entitled ‘Look to the future’.  Under the guidance of the rural dean and lay chair of the deanery, clergy and churchwardens have identified a need for change to the way we do mission and ministry. This is not going to be a quick fix but a journey of discernment which will take most of 2014. It is to be undertaken prayerfully so that we may discern where God is leading us. Clergy, elders and churchwardens have had some input in the form of a thought-provoking presentation which looked at life-cycle – the need for change and renewal as essential to life and growth. We are invited to look at our core values – to define what is most important in our life as a church here. What is the church in our village FOR? There will be a 3 or 4 week course in May, open to all, with the option of a daytime or evening meeting and during January and February 2014 there will be a series of sermons, published on this blog, looking at our calling as the people of God.
