Our Vision, Mission and Values
Our vision is a community where....
people have pride in living in Cringleford;
people are included and welcomed and have a sense of true belonging;
people rediscover how enriching it is to intentionally engage with others, as individuals, families and groups;
there is cohesion as people encounter one another, sharing a sense of making a difference together;
people live well, in a holistic sense - physically, socially, spiritually, emotionally, relationally;
people have the opportunity for new experiences;
people can experience Christian spiritual practices and explore their spirituality in a supportive community.
Because this is our vision, we will...
facilitate encounters by running, and encouraging others to run, a varied programme of activities, offering opportunities for new experiences and exploring “living well”; by listening to community need and responding inclusively.
The values that we hold are....
Inclusivity - we recognise that diversity and difference can be a strength in community, and we will respect and commit to working alongside people, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, orientation, gender etc. We will also intentionally find creative ways to include as many people as possible.
Quality - we will hold ourselves to high standards and commit to offering the best we can.
Collaboration and partnership - we are stronger together so will look to not do on our own what we might do together with other people, groups, organisations or bodies who share our passion for community.
Fairness - we will seek to source products and services in a way that recognises the true cost and supports workers (e.g. fair trade) and supports the local community (e.g. local businesses etc.)
