In 2009 we set our three fold vision:
Planting Churches - Having planted Christ Church Central in 2003, in 2009 we set the aim to plant a church every two years for the next 20 years. We planted Christ Church Endcliffe in September 2009 and we grafted into an existing congregation in 2011 at Holy Cross, Gleadless Valley. At the end of September 2012 we supported the planting of Christ Church Walkley by sending a group of people from here, and in 2017 we grafted into the congregation at St Mary’s Wheatley, Doncaster. Plans for our next church plant is currently being discussed.
Training Leaders - To see this part of our vision develop we appointed Ben Cooper to the staff in 2010. He has developed Fulwood Bible Training and oversees our Trainee scheme. We are seeking to train leaders to serve the church locally as well as training people for service in the wider church at home and abroad. We have sent 7 people to theological college and seen 5 of them ordained.
Growing Fulwood - As well as being a church that seeks to play it’s part in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and across the world, we are very definitely a local parish church. To that end we are always attempting to reach out to the local community and to grow Christ Church Fulwood numerically and spiritually. We have the two fold aim to reach out and build up.
We can only achieve our vision through the generous giving of our congregation. We seek to use all the money that is given, responsibly, for the growth of God’s Kingdom and the glory of His name. The Parochial Church Council has ultimate responsibility for approving how money is spent. Our accounts are fully audited and we adopt an approach of transparency and accountability.
