Our Mission in Lydney
We strongly believe that God’s mission for us in Lydney Parish is to
be committed to growing passionate disciples of Jesus Christ. People
who love and follow Jesus passionately and are in turn committed to
making passionate disciples.
Because Jesus commands us to:
‘Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in
the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and
teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And
remember, I am with you always to the very end of the age.’ (Matt
How will we do this?
By investing our efforts in the following:
1. Evangelism: Sharing the Good News with young and old alike.
2. Nurture: Maturing the Good News through the development of our
prayer lives, our engagement with the Bible, and the growth of
service and ministry in each member.
3. Local Outreach: Embodying the Good News in action in Lydney.
4. Wider Outreach: Spreading the Good News through our partners in
Mission: Sozo Women’s resettlement Project, Dornakal Dicoese, India.
What Difference will we make?
With God’s strength and help we pray that passionate disciples will
bring in the Kingdom of God wherever they live and work. We certain
aim in this direction. We also aim at being a clear and attractive
witness to Jesus and at growing our churches numerically and in
depth of maturity. We pray for a church community consumed by the
things of God and the longings of God for His world.
