PARISH MISSION STATEMENT

Our Parish exists as a faith community, centred on Christ, and called to continue all aspects of his mission in our time and location. As Baptised Christians, our vocation is to work collaboratively with our appointed priest-leader, to make Christ's mission alive here as we proclaim him in Word and Sacrament and in the witness of our lives in the world.

Our ministry embraces all believers, called to worship, to witness, to continuous conversion and formation in the faith, and also embraces the wider community in our area and throughout the world. We aim to have a caring, listening, open, prayerful and welcoming approach as we joyfully share the Gospel, and live it's values in the reality of our times. Our outlook is always to be inclusive as we interact in our multi-cultural and multi-ethnic society, seeking ways to be in touch with the language, signs, symbols and quests of our generation, and to make provision for difference.

As with the whole Church, we try to put into practise a fundamental option for the poor and marginalized, aware of new injustices in our changing social milieu, and of our duty to challenge for the common good.

In honouring these desires, we see our parish functioning in accordance with the title given to us to be a Gem Community Church, open for prayer, and immersed in the joys and sorrows of God's people
