Billericay & Little Burstead Team Ministry
Our Team’s Shared Vision and Priorities
Early in 2018 the District Church Councils of our team churches met individually and together, on a number of occasions, to develop a shared vision.
Our prayer at the outset, and during these meetings, was that God would reveal His vision for the Billericay and Little Burstead Team Ministry – a vision that will draw us together in unity to serve our community effectively.
From this work a three step vision emerged, each step following and building upon its predecessor:
For each person to have a personal relationship with God
We recognise the importance of every person listening to God in prayer and in worship, seeking guidance on His plan for each of us.
For us to have effective relationships with each other
We identify the need to communicate openly and honestly; to encourage each other, to listen carefully to each other and to have mutual respect.
For the team to build relationships with the community
We have a desire to engage with our community, across all ages and backgrounds, in order to find out what the community needs, so we can build bridges to allow us to engage with, and meet, those needs.
