MAP - Overview

What is Mission Action Planning (MAP)?

A MAP is an action plan for mission in your church. It is produced after much prayer and discerning God’s calling for your Church and community. The plan describes your vision for your Church. It also gives the long and short term priorities that you have decided will implement your vision. The plan will need to be reviewed and updated regularly and should be revised every 3 years.

“In Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their sins against them
and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us.”

MAP - stages













Stage 1: Where are we starting from?

What is our Church like? What links do we have with the community?
As individuals and as a church:
Spirituality – How is our Christian faith developing?
Discipleship – as followers of Jesus how are our lives standing out in a crowd?
Evangelism – How do we talk about what our Christian faith means for us?
Engagement – How are we salt and light in the world and our local community?

Stage 2: Where are we going?

What do we believe that God will do amongst us?
Where would we like to be in three years time?

After considering these:
What is your 3 year vision?

Stage 3: What’s the best way to get there?

What are our priorities?
Who will take action?

Stage 4: What do we need to do now?

Are we support the people involved in delivering our plan?
Are we organised to do it?
