The Vision for Our Congregation


After taking stock of our buildings during a recent survey and assessing their usefulness in the light of an ambitious vision for the future life of the congregation and its relationship with the community we recognised that improvements would allow for more progressive and appropriate community outreach and involvement.

The buildings surrounding the sanctuary have not been modernised or updated for a considerable number of years. The layout of rooms and corridors do not allow for the flexibility required for multifunction use. Nor do they create the sense of welcome and comfort that allows for an uplifting experience for regular participants and visitors.

Improvements in our accommodation alongside a focus on‘service to the community’ would allow us to offer a more appropriate response to the needs of our local community.

Assessing the local needs of our community Mannofield Church recognised its responsibility to foster a stronger sense of community focus and the following outcomes were envisioned:

 

Intended Outcomes
  • Improved facilities for all generations using the church for worship and other activities that provide greater comfort and usability.
  • Greater interaction with the local community through increased activities and events geared towards support for the individual.
  • Creation of a hub for young people to use as a meeting place that allows them to feel safe and valued.
  • A facility that is used by parents with young children who benefit from an opportunity to meet together and which is open during working hours.
  • A centre for the elderly situated at the heart of a community which is easily accessed and which provides a meeting place for fellowship and supportive contact with others.
  • A community facility out of which partner agencies can provide care provision to clients locally.
