Hythe is a seaside town with much history, a wide range of people, resources - and challenges. The parish reflects this with its own history, dedicated team of lay people and desire to minister to the town in a way that is relevant to today. The parish has a strong choral and eucharistic tradition which provides a solid foundation to explore additional ways of mission. The PCC is outward looking and open to new initiatives and there are many opportunities to work in partnership with others in the town and more widely.

Our Diocesan Vision
Changed Lives, Changing Lives
By God’s grace we want to be a people who are...
…confident & creative disciples of Jesus Christ
...rooted in scripture & drenched in prayer
…living gratefully, giving generously, caring for creation & sharing the gospel
...growing in number & expectations – of God & ourselves
...motivated by justice & love, open to the Spirit & ready for adventure!
Therefore we will …
'Therefore we will...' is a recognition that words without actions are empty. It is a commitment to taking real steps now to make this vision a reality soon. The current actions that flow from this vision - both at a diocesan level and in our deaneries - are outlined in detail over the rest of this document. Of course, these actions will change and develop over time - and we would encourage our parishes to consider this vision carefully for themselves, to explore together what actions they will commit to take, what their local 'Therefore we will...' might look like
