So time for some pictures and feedback…


At Orchard, the church mission is that they exist to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, but they have recognised that you need to define what it actually looks like.

At Orchard, a growing relationship is characterised by:

  1. Intimacy with God
  2. Community with insiders, and
  3. Influence with outsiders

They are a ‘Glocal‘ chuch… mission is not a department. Small groups are encouraged to adopt a missionary to support, and do local outreaches together. It is about thinking globally AND being involved locally.
