St Mary's vision and values


St Mary's Church, Stebbing has spent time over the past few years developing a vision statement to focus and guide the activities of the church.  The end result was our 'Connecting' vision:

Connecting with God
In worship and teaching

Connecting with You
In love and service

Connecting with Each Other
To transform the community

With that vision in mind, St Mary's aims to be a local church that is welcoming, relational, accessible for all generations and builds community and family life.  We desire intimate worship that is accessible, passionate, joyful and inspiring.  We aim for strategic mission that is holistic, inspired by the Spirit, concerned with justice and care for the poor.  We wish to model committed discipleship that models Christian love, prayerfulness, holiness, integrity, accountability, humility and generosity; enabling us to serve like Jesus.

We believe in every member ministry, where everyone contributes to the mission and ministry of the church.
