Values and Vision
In response to God’s love – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – Holy Trinity church is called to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ in Aylesbury, able to serve Him effectively wherever we go.
The VALUES we aim to live out in every part of church life are:
ALL INVOLVED: Everyone invited to use their spiritual gifts, abilities and talents to serve each other.
BECOMING DISCIPLES: Applying God’s word in the Bible to be able to live out his truth in daily life.
CREATING COMMUNITY: Welcoming and loving people of different backgrounds.
DOING EVANGELISM: Sharing the good news of Jesus in words and deeds
ENCOUNTERING GOD: Putting him at the centre and seeing everything we do as worship
FOUNDED IN PRAYER: Not in our strength but his.
GROWING AS LEADERS: Helping people to use their influence for good, wherever they live, work and play.
