Mission Action Plans
At the heart of Living God's Love is a request to parishes to undertake a process of Mission Action Planning.
A period of looking, listening, reflection and prayer leads into a time of planning and prioritising; seeking, with the Spirit’s guidance, to discern both a vision and also a course of action. Typically that course of action might have five year priorities and yearly goals.
It is suggested that parishes will benefit greatly from the advice and reflections of a Mission Accompanier in that process. There is more information on this website.

Please note that Parish MAPs need to be sent to Bishop Alan by the end of April 2012, i.e. after the APCM. The easiest way to do this is to enter the MAP online in this website.
A MAP is a tool for the journey; it’s a map, if you like. Sharing our MAPs will enable us to learn from each other, to focus resources and to develop strategy so that we can more fruitfully, imaginatively and joyfully walk the journey together.
