In our Vision Process in 2010, we discerned God’s call to six Key Areas of mission underpinned and resourced by our Resources Group. Each Key Area is directed by a Working Group on which there are always opportunities to serve.
Growing as Disciples
As members of Leatherhead Parish Church we aim to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ by attracting more people into our church family, and by growing in faith together.
We are a Jesus-centred church. Jesus is at the centre of what we do and how we live our lives. We try to discover his call to us; in moments of uncertainty we ask ourselves “what would Jesus do”.
We recognise that different people encounter God in different ways; we offer different patterns of worship so that everyone may find their own pathway to Jesus. We embrace worship styles that range from quiet contemplation to making a loud and joyful noise. We meet together in church and in people’s homes throughout the week. At special times we meet as a whole church to worship together as a Christian family.
We welcome the weak and the strong, the old and the young, the active and the less able, individuals and families, adults and children.
Everyone is valued. There are opportunities for all to use their time and talents and to contribute to the work of our Church.
Evangelistic Outreach and Community Engagement
We reach out into our local community, and with other churches share in worship and community activities. We aim to give at least ten per cent of our income to support the needy in our community, both local and worldwide.
We welcome the newcomer. We nurture and support our fellow worshippers. We pray for God’s help in our work.
