Vision and values


Children and young people…
loving Jesus,
committed to his church
and prepared for a lifetime of service. 


VALUES behind the vision statement…

1. Partnership with parents: We aim actively to support parents, in ways appropriate for different age groups, in their role as the primary disciplers of their children.

2. Discipleship in Christ: We long to see children and young people rooted in Christ: knowing God through his Word, living for him wholeheartedly in his world and seeking first his kingdom. When young people leave St Ebbe’s we hope that they will be well-prepared to participate fully in the life of their new church.

3. Integration with wider church: We seek to encourage and train children and young people to play their full part in the St Ebbe’s church family (belonging, serving, relating) for the benefit of the whole church as we live out what it means to be the body of Christ together.

4. Reaching those who’ve never heard: We hope to reach non-believing families in the city through various activities, groups and clubs - and also by equipping believing children and young people to be disciple-makers in their own contexts.
