In St Albans diocese our vision is to live God’s love. One way that we want to do this is by developing fresh expressions of church to reach people who don’t connect with traditional expressions of church. If you are thinking about wanting to start a fresh expression and wanting to be equipped to do this, the ‘mission shaped ministry’ course is for you and your team.
Whilst individuals will be welcomed to the course, it is hoped that small groups from a church will consider participating together, which will deepen the impact of the course.
The course runs over a period of a year, planned as one residential weekend, three Saturdays and eight Tuesday evenings.
Saturday dates – 9am – 4pm
