Reimagining Church: Shaped for Mission course

Everything changes: our culture, our neighbourhoods, our families, ourselves.

How should we respond to change?  And what is the future of the church?

These days local parishes are encouraged to become ‘missional’ – but what does that mean?

Is your church struggling with these questions? The Re-imagining Church course may help your parish understand what is happening and give you some ideas as to what you might do in the face of changing times.

This five week course seeks to help us re-imagine what church could be. The first three sessions look at changes in our culture; the spiritual resources the church has to respond to the challenges; and, what it means these days to be a “Christian”. Then participants explore some of the ways churches are already changing and adapting in order to be more effective. Finally, we consider what this might mean in our own situations – where do we go from here?

Re-imagining Church runs for about two hours and involves group discussion, engaging video clips, scripture study and prayerful reflection. Host churches provide refreshments.
