Our mission strategy: vision2020

Share this article

vision2020squareIn 2010 the United Reformed Church adopted a ten-year strategic framework for mission called vision2020. Its aim is to encourage and support mission planning at every level of the Church: local, synod and Assembly. Vision2020 includes ten priorities for mission and these are offered to local churches to help them identify one or two mission priorities which are particularly relevant to their context. Once priorities are set, churches can make a mission plan.

Vision2020 also aims to make sure that the Church’s resources for mission are used most effectively. Therefore churches that have identified their mission priorities and made their mission plan using vision2020 are asked to share those with their synod and with the mission team at Church House. This will help synods and Church House to plan how best to support and resource local churches in their mission.
