Mission Shaped Introduction
mission shaped introduction (msi) is a six session course that invites us to rediscover mission and re-imagine church in a changing world. It can be run locally, or with the help of the Parish Support team as an event for a Deanery or Mission Partnership.
There is no charge for the course, though donations are welcome to cover the costs of refreshments. An optional booklet is available for £4.
The most recent courses have been run at Woodlands in Doncaster, Catcliffe in Rotherham and Anston in the Laughton Deanery & by our Methodist colleagues in Handsworth.
Two new courses coming soon in 2017
- Rotherham. The msi course will run on 5 Monday evenings (8 May, 15 May, 22 May, 5 June, 12 June) at St Mary's Church in Greasbrough. Download flyers here for the Rotherham course: A4 format, A5 format.
- Sheffield. We are offering msi-in-a-day at St Chad's Church in Woodseats, Saturday 1 July, 9.30am-3.30pm. This condensed version of the course will suit those who cannot make a series of midweek evenings. Download flyers here for the Sheffield course: A4 format, A5 format.
- Full details of both courses can be found here.
The course is from the national Fresh Expressions team and more information can be found on their web page www.freshexpressions.org.uk/missionshapedintro
Mark Wigglesworth and John Hibberd from the Diocesan Parish Support Team are offering this course, with assitance from others, to churches in the Diocese. The course materials are also available to borrow from the St Peter's College Resource Centre. It can also be downloaded as a stand alone course from the national Fresh Expressions website
