Second pilot training workshop held in Camden: How to establish a vision statement:

Alice Yates tells us about the second workshop for ‘the Camden 4’ – a group of churches whose buildings are on the Heritage at Risk Register. 

Camden 4 Pilot: resilience and engagement

Workshop 2: How to establish a vision statement

St George the Martyr, Holborn, hosted the second workshop delivered as part of the Camden 4 Pilot Project. Emma Courtney of Courtney Consulting skilfully galvanised the audience into articulating what they would ideally like to see happening at their own churches and between the cluster in the future. The key question being, what does ‘outrageous success’ look like? The second half of the workshop focussed on developing individual vision statements for each of the four parishes. A vision statement helps communicate to funders and stakeholders your aspirations for the future- it is helpful to prepare one at the beginning of a capital project. The local communities surrounding the Camden 4 churches will now be consulted on the collective vision statement, as well as the individual ones at open days held over the Summer. The workshop forms part of the Camden 4 Pilot Project which was awarded a grant of £70,735 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, towards total project costs of £85,735. The project brings together four closely linked parishes in a joint initiative to consult local communities and to develop sustainable futures for each of their buildings.
