Purpose and Principles


Cumbria Christian Learning (CCL) has been created to support the mission of the Christian Church in Cumbria by growing disciples for mission.

Within the broad remit of God For All, Cumbria Christian Learning will work towards the particular goals for Reach:

By 2020 every person in Cumbria of all ages and backgrounds will have had an opportunity to discover more of God and God’s purpose for their lives, so that they will discover more of Jesus and the Good News and become followers of Jesus within a Christian community;

and Ministry:

We want to do Church better and enable all Christians to discover their vocation and ministry as a disciple of Jesus Christ. We want churches that are missional, sustainable and enable the ministry of many.

In partnership with other agencies, CCL will seek to be a catalyst of change and growth in pursuit of these strategic goals. In particular, CCL will support the establishment of Mission Communities across Cumbria.
