Our vision and values: What do we stand for?
If you would like to watch a video of our history and how we are strengthening lives, building communities and putting our faith in to action, you can see it here.
We put our vision in place through following our DARE strategy. DARE has four objectives that underpin our work.
Everything we do is underpinned by our values (GRACE UP). We are:
Generous - God is generous and we want to model that generosity to others.
Risk-taking - We have a long heritage as a pioneering movement, prepared to take risks and give colleagues permission to succeed or fail as they seek to do new things.
Accountable - We are accountable to God and others, living reliably and responsibly to high professional standards.
Collaborative - We are committed to partnership with those who share our values; we believe it enhances our work.
Expectant - We are hopeful, expecting God to do new things amongst us.
Unconditional - God loves everyone and everyone is significant in his eyes; we will serve anyone regardless of their age, gender, race, sexuality, faith, ability, status or circumstances.
Prayerful - Listening to God, being obedient to God, we want to be like Jesus in our life and witness.
