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.
