Parish Plan

The Five Key Parish Objectives

In December 2020, many of our South Parishioners completed a survey sharing their ideas on spiritual formation and social interaction that they wished to see being delivered in our parish.

This provided great insight and direction for the Leadership Groups to draw on themes and priorities that related directly to the wants and needs of our parishioners.

From this, a parish plan for Christchurch South was generated and five key parish objectives / priorities were identified for the 2021 – 2025 period.

IDENTITY & COMING TOGETHER
We will create opportunities for our parishioners to identify with belonging to a welcoming, alive in faith, community.

CONNECTION & COMMUNITY
We will have a variety of opportunities for our community to connect.

FORMATION & GROWTH
We will develop resources and engage with the people to equip them to grow in their understanding and deepening of their catholic faith, and strengthening their relationship with Jesus Christ.

LITURGICAL / CELEBRATIONS
The Liturgical plan will be supported with formation to achieve consistency across our Parish.

COMMUNICATION
We will develop and implement a “Parish wide” Communication Plan.
