Who are we?
This is the question we have been asking ourselves during January in our Sunday services and in our discussions together as small groups. We’ve seen that we exist as Cromer church to Love God, Grow Disciples, Be Family and (on 31st Jan) to Live Mission. It has been so encouraging to explore these topics as a whole church family – thank you for those who normally attend our St Martin’s congregation for joining together at the Parish Church - and we hope you have all valued this time. It is so important that we are clear on who we are, as we begin the process of asking what that will look like in the future. We pray you are excited about the future God has for us, as together we discern his vision for our church.
Regarding this ‘Vision process’ we are undertaking, in the next couple of weeks we will be putting some questions out that we would really appreciate you engaging with and responding to, which will help feed into our leadership’s decisions about our future. There will be questions for small groups to discuss, as well as questions for every individual in our church to answer.
We also need to ensure that we are genuinely seeking God at this time, and that prayer is at the heart of our church life throughout this process and beyond. So during Lent, we will be providing various opportunities and initiatives for each of us to engage in prayer for our future. So please listen out for these over the coming days.
