Mission Statement and Vision

The Parochial Church Council of
St Chad’s Church, Pattingham with Patshull

Mission Statement

Following Christ in the footsteps of St Chad, by living out our faith;
taking the church to the community and growing the church.

Vision

In order to fulfil this ambition our vision is:

  • to be an inclusive Church that reaches out to the whole community of Pattingham and Patshull and beyond – a Church that is welcoming to all who wish to share the ‘good news’ that the gospels bring, both as regular members as well as those who only attend occasionally or not at all;
  • to encourage children, young people, and young families to become involved in Church life and its activities so that they can experience the joy and spiritual fulfilment of Christianity;
  • to emphasise the benefits of coming to Church for those searching for friendship, spiritual guidance, and comfort;
  • to ensure that the Church, through its members, is at the heart of the community;
  • to maintain an interest in the wider work of the Church in the Deanery and Diocese and beyond, while still being concerned with our own parish.

The Mission Statement was last amended in March 2021 and the Vision was approved by the PCC in December 2021
