Our Vision

our vision for 2022

We have always been at the heart of Highworth, a building and community at the centre of the geographical, spiritual and pastoral heart, serving community life.

The reordering has enabled the restatement of the medieval vision of the building and its purpose, for worship, celebrations and parties, funerals, legal hearings, weddings, commercial activity and community events.

 

Serving the community takes many forms and seeks to do so for all age groups, we have a unique place and vision as the Parish Church and congregation of our town to support, care and join the lives of everybody in Highworth.

 

We do this by seeking to draw people into St Michael’s, and to go out into the town with the same aim of serving, through CAP, schools work, pastoral support and volunteering in all aspects of community life.  We have met that vision to serve our community since our 2016 five year plan as follows:

 

· Developed our pastoral support for the housebound and less mobile

· Appointed a schools worker

· Recruited 2 trainees for youth work from South Western Youth Ministries

· Maintained financial and volunteering support for CAP and schools work.

 

So much hurt and uncertainty lies hidden in lives into which Jesus longs to enter. Our vision to serve has always been with the good news, the gospel of Jesus, through our clergy, through our volunteering, through our community projects on our own and with the other town Churches.

 

This document shows our continuing vision to this end and our specific mission aims for 2022.
