The PCC of All Saints has adopted a ‘school style’ improvement plan, or action plan, as it seeks to develop the parish’s mission and service to its local community and parish, and to the wider Town of Cheltenham. The plan seeks to maintain and enhance the distinctive musical, liturgical and theological inheritance of All Saints; whilst providing easy steps to enable fellow spiritual pilgrims to establish their own personal relationship with Christ.
Though the plan does include necessary and desirable developments to the fabric of All Saints; it primary focus is on mission and Christian nurture. The priorities for development being to encourage spiritual development both for the existing congregation, those on the fringes of the worshipping community, and those who come seeking spiritual knowledge and nurture.
The wider plan and it immediate action points, was formed out of a period of consultation and discussion in the parish family, which enabled the PCC to identify the scope of strengths, and needs felt by the parish family. The plan will be subject to review as elements of the action plan are achieved. This new website being one of the first elements of the action plan to be completed.
