Action Plan

Following a lively discussion at the AGM and at the Summer Forum our ideas are consolidating into a few key initiatives:

  • 24 hour prayer in the autumn
  • Christmas cards to 1000 inmates, primary schools competition for card design via STEPS (?)
  • Carol singing with a band + holy fools (?) to raise money and awareness for Winter Beds
  • Winter Beds when the need arises.

Remember: an idea is just a potential beginning.  We need

  • Someone to ‘own’ it and make it happen
  • Lots of people to actively support it.

Here is the longer list of ideas

  • A pilgrimage where a group of people visit a different church once a month, sharing afterwards and presenting their journey at a forum
  • Quizz & Supper night
  • Rich man / poor man meal
  • Grill the Clergy: this was great success and should be done again
  • This is my church forum
  • A multi-bike ride like we did for the Tsunami
  • Visiting different churches as a group
  • Special service e.g. Harvest
  • Shared worship
  • inter faith – building bridges
  • Christmas cards to inmates at HMP Bovingdon
  • Learning from one another in small groups
  • Ensure publicity is welcome
  • A common project
  • Sports Day
  • Partner with a member of another church
  • Christmas Carols in the market – with Salvation Army?
  • 24 hour prayer
