Churches launch new vision for future
2007: Transforming Norwich, which represents Churches Together in Greater Norwich, has launched a new “vision for the future” statement and logo to guide its activities and members.
It aims to put Christians united at the heart of the community, working together with everyone who cares about the quality of community life by adopting "Making Norwich a Fine Community" as its slogan.
Transforming Norwich Chairman John Betts
(pictured right) said: “The aspirational vision looks to the future as if we were already there and it is actively taking place. It is Isaiah 58 in modern English for our society today. This is what we see as our future for the church in Norwich.”
Vice-chairman Rev Nicholas Vesey said: “This is something that people outside the church can agree with and get behind. It is hopefully accessible and goes beyond the aspirations of everyone and may help to get more of them to join us.”
The aspirational vision for the future statement reads:
“Norwich is a fine city. People experience it as a fine community, a place where people look after each other. Where injustice, exploitation, loneliness and oppression are sought out and eradicated. The hungry and homeless are cared for. Families in crisis have someone to help them. Everyone understands where to turn in times of need. Christians are united at the heart of the community, working together with everyone who cares about the quality of community life.”
