As previously mentioned (see here), a mission shaped ministry course in our diocese is set to begin in September.

The course is said to be for:

  • Those exploring how to begin, sustain and grow a fresh expression of church
  • Experienced pioneers who want to reflect on what they are doing
  • Those wanting to learn qualities of Christian ministry
  • Christians who want their churches to be more effective in mission
  • All denominations, traditions and ages
  • Urban, suburban and rural contexts.


Modules are set to include:

  • Mission context
  • The mission of God
  • Vision, values and call
  • Starting something new
  • Listening for mission
  • What is church?
  • Gospel and culture
  • Team roles and behaviour
  • Discipleship
  • Evangelism
  • Spirituality, worship and sacraments
  • Growing to maturity.


Sessions will be held in Sleaford and Market Rasen, and further information, including booking details, are available here.
