The heart of the community 2013

                                                    VISION DAY – JUNE 15TH


                On Saturday June 15th we held a consultation morning for the whole congregation in church. The purpose was to give as many members of St Hilda’s as possible, a chance to review what we have been doing and becoming in the last three years. It was also be an opportunity for us to discern together where God is leading us in the future.

         To prepare for the day, every member of the church was asked to write down in no more than 60 words their vision of St Hilda’s. Alternatively, they were asked to think visually – to draw a picture that represents who they are called to be.

          On Wednesday June 12th, the church was open from 10am-8pm, to pray for our Vision Day.

           Rev Duncan Hill-Brown, our Transforming Church consultant, led us in our reflections.
