Our Vision for 2017

Missio Dei (The Mission of God) 2017 Theme
This year we will be focusing our worship and preaching on the ‘Missio Dei’ which is latin for the Mission of God. It is a specific term that describes the way God works in the world and how we, the church, are invited to be a part of God’s mission.

The boat is an ancient symbol for the church. It features in many of the gospel stories and acts to explain how God’s community functioned. In the image of the boat we are treated to a potent metaphor for living in a community of believers and we can discover what responsibilities have been given to the church and what role the church plays in the world and in the lives of its members.

In ancient days the sea was terrifying. It was believed to be the one part of creation that had not been tamed by God. In an age when everyone believed in sea monsters and an earth so flat that you could sail right off the edge, it took courage to set sail in a creaky wooden boat. Ancient sailors had to trust in God and in each other. By exploring the “boat” metaphor we hope to build a more sea-worthy church to weather the winds of culture and be faithful in our call to be fishers of people.
