Discipleship in a time of Reconstruction

About this event

Mission Shaped Ministry is a one year learning journey, equipping people to being, sustain and grow mission initiatives, including Lightwave groups. It consists of 15 modules which include areas such as;

  • Listening for mission
  • Gospel and culture
  • Starting new initiatives
  • Building a strong team
  • Worship and sacraments in fresh expressions of church
  • Making a fresh expression of Church sustainable

The Mission Shaped ministry course is delivered flexibly with a group or team who want to reach out to their community or network and help others discover God's love. To find out more and to register your interest in the MSM Flexi course go to; https://lightwave.churchsuite.com/events/ckuuggie.

On 3 Saturdays in Autumn, Winter and Spring the groups/teams will join together for a session on Zoom, which are strongly encouraged for MSM-Flexi attendees and also open to anyone in the Diocese to attend. These Saturdays look at a current challenge in mission.

Discipleship in a Time of Reconstruction Saturday

During 2020, 20% of the population engaged with some form of online service or Christian spiritual input. What does that say about the longing there is in the hearts of many, especially when facing difficulty about the need for guidance beyond ourselves?

If discipleship is more caught than taught, then what sort of communities are we trying to form where what it means to follow Christ is honestly lived and shared? How do people turn to us for guidance and want to reconstruct their lives in the face of an existential threat, move from enquiries, to attendees, to choosing to be baptised and confirmed as new disciples?

Are our churches and fresh expressions willing to face the cost of what it might mean to be places where anyone can experience what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ? This will be based on one of the key units from the Mission Shaped Ministry course B04 Discipleship.

It is £10 to attend, but the Saturdays are free for those participants already on the MSM Flexi course. Please select a MSM Flexi participants ticket if you are already on the course, or General Admission ticket if you are attending this session as a stand alone event. You only need to select one ticket.

Those who have a CMD allowance can use this to cover the cost of this session. Please email Lesley.Steed@cofesuffolk.org to arrange this.

To sign up and book a place for this Saturday, please do so through Eventbrite.

The Zoom link for each Saturday will be emailed to the email address you register with on Eventbrite.

For further enquiries contact Nina.Seaman@cofesuffolk.org.
