Glossary of "Healthy Parishes" terminology
Characteristics of Healthy Parishes (Churches) (from a variety of sources)
The primary goal of our Task Group is to support parishes in their growth & development as people of God. We focus our work in three key areas at this time (2017-18):
- Becoming a Missional Community
- Christian Formation
- Creating & Developing Disciples
Check the menu options to the left for more resources in our three key areas.
Faith Sharing Cards - these are intended to be used to promote faith-based discussion at the opening of any meetings held by your church community. A few are marked "IB" and are more informal 'ice-breaker'-type questions, while those marked "FS" for faith-sharing would likely promote deeper discussion that would require a bit more time.
