In order that we have a plan for the future of Parish of Baildon, the PCC begun some work on strategic planning which is continuing. It is an exciting piece of work and means that as a Parish will can see where we are aiming for in the next few years in order to live out the Diocesan Vision of Confident Christians, Growing Churches and Transforming Communities. The Diocese has developed a toolkit to help us in this work and at the BEAF meeting (Bradford Episcopal Area Forum) on Thursday 23rd May this will be explained more fully. All Deanery Synod Reps are invited and if there is anyone else who would like to know more about how this can help Baildon to think about its future planning, they are very welcome to attend. The meeting is at St Margaret’s Church, Thornbury at 7:30pm, with refreshments from 7pm and if you need a lift please see either Sandra or Ruth.
