     I was just checking in with the Diocesan website ( http://www.nspeidiocese.ca/ ) to see what's new and thought I'd post what appears at the very top of the website home page - Our Mission Our Vision.  
     Here it is, from the website...
Mission: To participate in God’s mission of reconciling the world to God through Jesus Christ.
Vision: To create and sustain Christ-centered, mission-minded- ministering communities of faith.
*By focusing on the Marks of Mission of the Anglican Communion (1984)
  • to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom;
  • to teach, baptize and nurture new believers;
  • to respond to human need by loving service;
  • to seek to transform unjust structures of society;
  • to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.
*By focusing on the Marks of a Healthy Congregation from the Alban Institute:                                                                       
  • IDENTITY: Our congregation knows who they are before God;
  • VISION: Our congregations knows what it is called to do;         
  • STEWARDSHIP: Our congregation has the resources and leadership necessary to carry out it calling;  
  • WORSHIP: People experience the power and energy of the Gospel in their worship and life together;
  • OUTREACH: The activities of the congregation make a discernible difference in individual lives and in the world around us.
