Over the last year, a small group set up by the Kirk Session and facilitated by Jason Curtis of Rutherford House has been going through a review process called “Embers to a Flame”. This booklet is the fruit of its labours.
In this booklet you will find:
a) Our Mission and Vision Statements (page 1)
These say in a nutshell what we believe the folks of Torrance Church are called by God to do and how we will go about it.
b) A Vision Narrative (pages 3 to 7)
This was borne out of a month of prayer. It is written from a perspective of the future, say 5 years time, and gives an artist’s impression of the kind of church that we believe, by the grace of God, we might become.
c) An Outline of the ETAF process (page 8)
This describes the aim of the process, lists the ‘strategies’ looked at and gives our conclusion as to which we believe we should concentrate on. (There were many areas of church life that needed work! As we sought God, it became apparent which ones we should begin with.)
d) Objectives (pages 9 to 18)
In order to enable us to focus our efforts, we then set some specific objectives that would help us to fulfil the Mission of Jesus in this area.
