The first session in the Mission Shaped Intro went well last Thursday. (see advert on May 15th). I thought we would do well to get about 12/13 but in the end 20 turned up and apologies from 4 others !! Today I’ve heard of another one who’s coming along this week so 25 in total. That’s wonderful.
Roger and I who delivered the course work well together, sharing the speaking and the input. We watched Mr Bean goes to Church, we looked at clips from two Fresh Expressions of Church and we studied (quickly) which changes in society had affected the Church most; changes such as Sunday shopping, Sunday becoming a family day, different social groupings, different social networks etc.
All in all it was a good night and I would strongly recommend it to you all. We still have some spaces left, but why not run it in your own Church or area ?
