The Future of Local Mission

Event Details

International Methodist delegation to visit and present at UME, located at the Centre for Ministry.

Are you interested in the evolving and changing world for people, and how local churches is are central to the change itself?

On Tuesday, 8 August, UME is thrilled to be hosting a delegation of international visitors from World Methodist Evangelism and the WMEI:

Our visiting dignitaries will lead a discussion on: “The Future of Local Mission” in an era of global mass migration and climate change. As peoples of all nations and cultures are moving across continents in unprecedented numbers, World Methodism has engaged afresh with that world and with holistic mission. Hear how they are achieving fresh engagements at a local, regional, state and national level.

Uniting Church congregations are often caught in these changes locally, and are deeply uncertain how to meet them.  Join members of the Uniting Church, UME staff and congregation community members for a morning of discussion and exploration.
