The aim of the STEP scheme is to help churches become churches which can be described as …

S   SERVING   God and Jesus and the local community with both welcome and warmth, reflecting Jesus and the joy of the Gospel.

 TEACHING people about Jesus, providing patterns of worship that give spiritual experiences to people of all ages and activities to help people deepen their relationship with God in Jesus.

  ENCOURAGING one another to be bold and to venture in new directions. Encouraging our members to be part of the work. Encouraging families to be part of the local church

P    PARTNERING with all ages within the church in work and worship. Forming partnerships to further God’s kingdom in the community.

Becoming part of the STEP scheme may help you see the life and work of the church in a new way. As you accept the challenge, people in your community may see the church of Jesus Christ in a new light!
