CAN YOU HELP? THE FOCUS Early discussions between the churches have identified six good projects that could have a significant impact on the area. The six projects are shown below.
If you join the team you will help us shape these projects. We would love to hear from you if you have a particular concern or expertise in one of these areas. A view of the new Battersea Power Station
SOUTH LONDON IS CHANGING
In the next ten years over 30,000 new residents and 25,000 new workers will move into Battersea, Nine Elms and Vauxhall. It is the largest cultural, residential and commercial redevelopment in London. This is a massive challenge for local churches as they try to work out how to serve parishes that will double in size.
WE NEED YOUR IDEAS
A team is being set up to to help parishes and deaneries respond to these changes. We are looking for resourceful, creative and concerned people from local churches in Lambeth and Battersea to join the team and help us plan the future.

WHAT WILL THE TEAM DO?
The aim of the team is to recommend creative and workable mission ideas to the Diocese. To do this we will: 1 INVESTIGATE the Battersea and Nine Elms area to understand the issues facing the local churches 2 DISCUSS the six projects to find their strengths and weaknesses 3 IDENTIFY what resources would be needed to carry out the projects
THE TIME COMMITMENT
We expect the team to meet on three Saturday mornings (from 9.30am-2pm) and three or four evenings (from 7.30 9.30pm) during October and November.
For those who can offer more time there will be background material to read between meetings to keep us well informed.
