Rural Ministries Regional Conference - 10th February 2018

regional-conferences-1-2018Mission as a dialogue: reaching your community Bury St Edmunds - 10th February 2018

Our world has radically changed;  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.

At this one day event In 2018, we will unpack this topic, and explore together how a deep listening to our rural communities will help us share the Gospel.  The day will be interactive with four main workshops:

  • Workshop 1: Where is everybody? - Understanding the local context; how to ask the right questions. Demographic research; how to read local statistics. Finding the ‘gathering point’ of the community.
  • Workshop 2: Where is God? - What are the signs of ‘good news’? Who else is here?  Undertaking a walk of awareness – practical task & reflection.
  • Workshop 3: Where are we? - What are we already good at? Where has your church got community touch points? Practical mission audit – Review, when, how and why of your church mission.
  • Workshop 4: Where next? - Joining all the dots; beginning to form a strategy. We all have a part to play. Now, take a risk.

The event costs just £15 including handouts and a light lunch.  Bookings must be made in advance and we are able to accept card or cheque payments. Full details of the event and booking information can be found on our website: Rural Ministries
