A vision for mission
William Temple Parish Church
Central to our vision is baptism. We are fortunate to welcome many families in to the church each year through baptismal services and the font is at the heart of our magnificent church building.
Baptism is the start of a journey and we hope that through baptism, families will feel welcome in our church community. We long to belong and we hope that everyone who connects with our parish church will also sense that belonging.
As we celebrate our growing Christian family we give thanks for the opportunity to journey together in faith. Belonging is part of our believing.
Our vision for mission encourages this Belonging before Believing.
Belonging… in faith
Belonging… in worship
Belonging… in the community

The story so far...
Over the past year or so the Parochial Church Council at William Temple Parish Church has been exploring what mission means for our congregation, our church community and our parish.
We have involved the congregation and local residents in these conversations and launched our Mission Plan as part of our 50fest celebrations in 2015.
The PCC has adopted the
plan and you can read it
