Mission Shaped Ministry Programs at Uniting Mission & Education

What does it look like when we build Christian discipleship communities shaped by people who aren’t yet members of any church?
How do we establish missional communities where people can encounter and live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ without having to step into a church building?
In 2018, the NSW ACT Synod is launching Mission Shaped Ministry, a program originally created in the UK as part of the Fresh Expressions movement.
The Mission Shaped Ministry courses are being delivered by teams from UME, Uniting, Parramatta Nepean and Sydney Central Coast Presbyteries.
Experiential and reflective learning increase the capacity and learning in this field which is still relatively new.
