Jesus often used images from nature like trees and plants to describe the growth of the kingdom of God.
Vision 2026 encourages us to use the image of a healthy tree to help us assess the health of our local church.
To introduce this theme you may like to watch the five minute video embedded below, featuring Archdeacon Mark.
Alternatively you can read a longer introduction in the 2021-24 Vision Update document, pages 9-12, available here.
The new Healthy Church Assessment Tool provides a framework for conversation to consider the health of different aspects of church.
