How We'll Get There

To effectively contribute to the overall Sydney Diocesan Vision, Mission and Values, the Growth Corporation has developed its Strategic Plan. The Plan interprets and details how we will achieve our mission within the broader Mission of the Diocese in the coming three-year period.

Nelson Mandela once said,

“Action without vision is only passing time, vision without action is merely daydreaming, but vision with action can change the world.”

We would also add in there that vision with action, under God, can do what seems impossible and bring people from death to life (Matthew 19:25-26).

In recent years, the Sydney Diocese has not had a consistent and deliberate strategy to use its property to facilitate its Mission. Instead, various organisations and stakeholders within the Diocese have operated with different visions and strategies, not reaping the benefits of collaboration, the sharing of ideas and experience, and the benefits of supporting each other. The Growth Corporation’s role is to bring together these various organisations and stakeholders. With God’s help, it will enable our Diocese to use and develop our property in ways that better support our Mission.

Strategic planning is of no value unless, as an organisation, we effectively implement it. The Growth Corporation Strategic Plan is, therefore, a starting point. A detailed action plan has been developed as a companion to the Strategic Plan, for use by the Growth Corporation to report on progress to Standing Committee and Synod. If we faithfully implement this Strategic Plan, God willing, we will see more people experiencing the love of Christ through connecting with his people and hearing the gospel, and realising their need to submit to him as Lord and Saviour.

The Growth Corporation initiatives come under the following four main themes and are detailed in the Strategic Plan.
