Where might we begin to make practical changes to reshape the church for mission in a post-Christian era?
How can we make space to reflect together and listen to others on what it means to be God’s people in these times?
In Faithful Presence, David Fitch outlines seven disciplines that shape the church for mission. Over the course of the spring, Donna Jennings and Sam Moore will facilitate a learning community that makes space to read and reflect on these disciplines and begin to make small yet meaningful changes to earth them in our contexts.
We recognise the time pressures of church leadership and the importance of taking time and space to reflect, learn and act. So, we will meet virtually on zoom over lunch (12.45-2pm) every fortnight for eight sessions, working through the chapters of the book. 2024 dates are:
Thursday 7 March
Thursday 21 March
Thursday 11 April
Thursday 25 April
Thursday 9 May
Thursday 23 May
Thursday 6 June
Thursday 20 June
“I loved the space for learning around missional thinking that I otherwise would not have found time for. Discussing the reading with others in ministry was mutually beneficial and shaped my thinking and practice around being more present in the places I find myself”Neil Harrison, Mission Development Officer, Presbyterian Church in Ireland
“Faithful Presence is an unusual and provocative book, which helped me see many things in a new way, and also stirred up many questions. I really appreciated a chance to explore these insights and questions in a group with others, guided by Donna and Sam.”John-Mark Mullan, Church leader, Mountsandel Christian Fellowship
