  10. 10. What has happened to our Churches In the last 500 years?<br />Big Question<br />Simple Answer: Decline and even more so <br />in the last 80 years .<br />Now we are trying to stop the decline. In fact Canon Lunt started this 26 years ago when St Peter’s Ecumenical Centre first opened its doors.<br />Two years ago we launched our Project. Last year we launched our appeal and opened the internet cafe. <br />We have started to make waves and this is all down to our volunteers. <br />

  19. 19. Why only four solutions? Because the whole plan grows out from those four solutions. <br />Planning for Success<br />2020<br />
  20. 20. Preserving our Ancient Buildings<br />Our ancient buildings are in a dire state of decline - a full solution using the latest technology, will make them warmer, more secure and happier places to be.<br />We will prioritise the most urgent issues.<br /> We will review our energy consumption for the next one hundred years to minimise our environmental impact. <br />New and inventive uses for our buildings must add value to them as well as conserving our national assets.<br />We are also looking to share and learn from the Wrexham Open Church Network, and implement this in Cheshire West by around 2016. <br />Solution 1<br />
  21. 21. Sacred Space<br />As buildings of faith it is vital that we develop the faith aspects of our buildings.<br />We want to increase the number of congregation, special services, weddings and baptisms. <br />We aim to introduce a new Fresh Expression of Church at St Peter's called @TheCross.<br />We are not just a tourist attraction, we are a church. <br />We also aim to encourage outside organisations to use our space - for theatre, arts and community purposes. <br />We will make our buildings easily accessible to all and also available to hire.<br />We must promote and market our buildings to increase visitor numbers.<br />We must also harness the potential of our volunteer team to ensure that they, and our visitors, are fully engaged with our buildings.<br />Solution 2<br />

  25. 25. We aim to produce enough income to no longer be grant- or donor-led, by 2017
  26. 26. We have already started an IT Centre and will introduce a video/film-making project that will help us grow. We will be offering these services on open market </li></ul>Solution 3<br />
  27. 27. ChesterLiving History<br />This is a completely new programme offering to bring history alive from the 6th century to the 20th century<br />Our buildings are connected to some of the most important events in the nation’s history<br />We are developing a full programme of Living History events within St John's and St Peter's <br />Some of these events will be free; some will be private functions<br />Most importantly there will be National Curriculum workshops for school groups of up to forty children at a time – taking part in marching, drumming, crafts, and staged combat – to feel and live history<br />We will also bring history alive through new visitor interpretation, guide books, films, virtual tours<br />We also wish to play our part in promoting Chester as a tourist experience and heritage destination<br />Solution 4<br />

Our location right at the heart of the City, amongst all the shops, means we can put God on the High Street.<br />
