Plymouth City Spiritual vision: For Plymouth to be a welcoming city – safe, caring and hope-filled for all. Where churches respect and celebrate their heritage, culture and service. They grow in unity, exercising new methods for mission and mercy; with new partnerships for growth and diversity. They will be prayer based and God centred; with inequalities reducing and opportunities increasing; building a new pioneering generation and trusting in Christ to impact the city with God's grace and truth.
