Mission Resourcing

Uniting Mission and Education works with Uniting Resources, presbyteries, and congregations to identify and distribute resources for: congregations, presbyteries, and others in the Synod to live out Jesus’ call to be at mission — connecting with their communities.

The goal of mission resourcing staff and processes is to extend the Church’s capacity to engage in mission, focussing on:

  • renewing and revitalising existing congregations, which enable people to experience, nurture and share a passionate faith with God who is revealed in Jesus Christ;
  • encouraging the development of new faith communities, including parallel congregations, new worship opportunities and other new ways of being church;
    and
  • supporting creative responses to God’s call to witness to the call of Jesus Christ.

 

Introducing Alison Bleyerveen

Alison’s role is focused on resources that support communities of faith as they begin and continue to do mission in their communities.  She helps groups use an action-reflection cycle to explore their expression of God’s mission in their local communities.   Alison keeps an eye on funding applications for local mission, and works with Uniting staff to foster the development of community hub partnerships.  An important part of Alison’s role is supporting presbyteries.
