Event description

Description

Mission as a dialogue: understanding your community

Our world has radically changed; we live in a time where there is a multiplicity of choices, a time when the moral codes and ethics are less than clear. It is a time of hurry and rush; a time when we seemingly know our neighbours less well, and yet conversely, we are more globally aware than ever before as media outlets flood us with news about what is happening on the other side of the world.

In this changing culture and context, it can seem like the inherited ways of church and mission are no longer bearing the same level of fruit that they once did. Sundays for many being a day of leisure, a day of visiting family which are often spread geographically over great distances, and a day for catching up on the household chores. Is it possible that we have become so accustomed to speaking the gospel to the world, that we have lost the importance of listening to our world?

In 2018, we at Rural Ministries are going to unpack this topic through our regional days, and explore together how a deep listening to our rural communities will help us share the gospel.

This interactive training day is suitable for people involved in pastoral care, ordained clergy, as well as those who number amongst the regular members of the congregation.
