Mission Action Planning Tool 2

Click here to visit the MAP 2 page.  MAP 2 has been sent to all incumbents (or wardens if in vacancy) to be completed and returned by 31st March so that the Parish Support Team can support your plans through training events, resources and signposting.  It covers the same eight areas as MAP 1, and allows you to assess your progress and develop further plans for growth.

A plan of how the Parish Support Team intend to resource MAP2 with a programme of events can be found here


Mission Action Planning Tool 1

In 2014, the Parish Support Team produced a Mission Action Planning Tool to guide parishes through a structured process by which eight aspects of church life are assessed.  In January 2016, a review form was sent to parishes to help them keep track of progress.

Our MAP tool is a simplified form of the Mission Action Planning Process developed and described by Mark Ireland and Mike Chew in 'How to do Mission Action Planning: A Vision Centred Approach'.

A Mission Action Planning Prayer

God of Mission
who alone brings growth to your Church
send your Holy Spirit to give
     vision to our planning
     wisdom to our actions
     and power to our witness.
Help your church to grow
     in numbers
     in spiritual commitment to you
     and in service to your world
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Adapted from a Leading Your Church into Growth Collect for From Evidence to Action Conference.
