Visionary in that we are able to look to the future while building upon the past.


Energetic in that we are willing to give time and effort to the various tasks assigned or asked of us on behalf of the wider congregation.


Supportive in that we listen to each other and the wider congregation and seek to care for each other.


Thoughtful in that we do not rush in with ideas "half-baked" but take time to think and pray the way forward.


Responsible in that we remember that we are representing the wider membership of St Mary's congregation and not our individual concerns alone and that we are effective in our communication with each other and the congregation.


Yeasty in that we allow ideas to rise and be mulled over.
