In recent years many parishes in the Church of England have adopted the concept of developing a Mission Action Plan or MAP. The idea behind this is to help churches to plan how they look to the future and to have a primary focus on mission as they do so.
At St Saviour’s, we made our first Mission Action Plan in 2013. It gave us a tool to help focus the ministry and mission that we believed that God was calling us to. In the light of this experience, the PCC worked through the process and each year produced a new MAP.
