Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan

Why did we feel the need to develop a Strategic Plan to take us into the future?

In 2007 the Parramatta Presbytery for the Uniting Church hosted a Seminar for churches of medium size, including Springwood.  At the Seminar, St Matthew‟s Church Baulkham Hills and West Epping churches shared their experience of growing from a medium sized church to a large or regional church.  Research was presented at the meeting demonstrating, that unless medium sized churches deliberately think through their mission and plan how to grow and respond to change, they will not continue to grow and will, over a few years, shrink back to a small to medium sized church.

This information triggered the beginning of our journey in developing our own 2010 – 2015 Strategic Plan which is available by clicking here.
