Background ...

Our Mission Statement and Aims are intended to put us on a mission footing.

The mission statement was agreed by Church Council on 22nd February, 2011, and at the same time we decided to start putting money aside for a mission project.  

The aims will ensure that we regularly review our mission statement and look at new and existing work to see if it meets the criteria set by our Mission Statement.

In 2013 we held a day of vision when all connected with Southlands were invited to dream dreams at the start of a process leading to the formation of a programme for the future.
