Mission Shaped Ministry Workshop | Registrations Open

Registrations are open for our introduction to Mission Shaped Ministry workshop days.  A one-day workshop…a taste-test for Mission Shaped Ministry.

What is Mission Shaped Ministry?  And why are we seeking to be the church this way?

You are warmly invited to participate in one of our Saturdays sessions that Uniting Mission & Education will be running to help you begin an exploration of ‘mission shaped ministry’ or ‘being church’ in ways that will support the mission context we find ourselves in today.

Mission Shaped Ministry introduction days will explore these ideas through teaching, story, and reflection and ask how we may all — individually and collectively — understand and equip ourselves to discover and participate in the mission of Jesus Christ where we live and work, for the sake of the world.

The recent census highlights that an increasing number of Australians have little to no experience of traditional expressions of church and are not that interested.   However, research also supports the idea that many people are interested in exploring and meaning-making, regarding themselves as perhaps ‘spiritual but not religious’.

This day is ideal for individuals or groups who are interested in learning about and participating in mission, and also for leadership teams with responsibility for fostering discipleship and shaping church engagement with the community.

What is this workshop a taste-test for?
This one day workshop is a “taste test” for our Mission Shaped Ministry part time course being offered in 2018 by Uniting Mission & Education.  The Mission Shaped Ministry course will be run as a short course, split into 5 parts across the calendar year, allowing participants the flexibility of study, without needing to block out a week of study.  The  course will be held on: Saturday 3 March, Saturday 5 May, Saturday 28 – Sunday 29 July, Saturday 1 September and Saturday 3 November.  Come along to this one day workshop and see if Mission Shaped Ministry is an area of interest for you and your study in 2018.
