Jesus said: ‘But Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.’
(St. Matthew 6: 33 King James Bible)
We ask God’s Holy Spirit to guide us in living out this Vision in each Parish, in the Clusters of Churches and across the whole Team. By this, we hope and pray that we might love God more, serving Him joyfully and in faith, finding ways to love and serve our neighbours in all we do. We long to see a valley overflowing with God’s presence, as we trust Him to help us in living a Kingdom lifestyle with Kingdom values, by:
Resting in the Love of God (in worship and prayer)
Responding to the Love of God (as we grow in faith) and
Reaching out with the Love of God (serving others and being ready to share our faith in word and action)
Our Team of 16 rural Wiltshire Churches belongs to Salisbury Diocese. The Bishop of Salisbury’s Vision for the whole Diocese reinforces and encourages our own aims in the Team:
Pray + Serve + Grow
The Bishop’s Prayer for Renewing HOPE
God our Father, renew our hope.
By the Holy Spirit’s power,
strengthen us to pray readily,
serve joyfully and grow abundantly
rejoicing in Jesus Christ our Lord.
