Our Mission in Lydney

We strongly believe that God’s mission for us in Lydney Parish is to be committed to growing passionate disciples of Jesus Christ. People who love and follow Jesus passionately and are in turn committed to making passionate disciples.
Because Jesus commands us to:
‘Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always to the very end of the age.’ (Matt 28.19).
How will we do this?
By investing our efforts in the following:
1. Evangelism: Sharing the Good News with young and old alike.
2. Nurture: Maturing the Good News through the development of our prayer lives, our engagement with the Bible, and the growth of service and ministry in each member.
3. Local Outreach: Embodying the Good News in action in Lydney.
4. Wider Outreach: Spreading the Good News through our partners in Mission: Sozo Women’s resettlement Project, Dornakal Dicoese, India.
What Difference will we make?
With God’s strength and help we pray that passionate disciples will bring in the Kingdom of God wherever they live and work. We certain aim in this direction. We also aim at being a clear and attractive witness to Jesus and at growing our churches numerically and in depth of maturity. We pray for a church community consumed by the things of God and the longings of God for His world.
