Partnership for Missional Church

Hi all, our PMC team attended the latest ‘cluster group’ meeting in the middle of June. We found it informative. It generated allsorts of questions for us as a team, and about our missional life in the parish. We reviewed our work to date and looked ahead to what is coming. So here is a little update.

Firstly, we are continuing to explore and implement ‘Dwelling in the Word’ which we will hope to diffuse throughout our committees and church. This will take sometime. When you encounter it, it may seem a little different ... but go with it. The aim is to listen to God and his message for us through the Bible passage. Please have a read of the attached notes which explain the practise.
Following on with the theme of ‘listening’ a big thank you to the twenty two people who took part in the PMC interviews. This was a way for us to ‘listen’ and note the views of people regarding churchlife. From this we hope to discover important questions about where God may want us to be working. The information has now been collated and you’ll hear more about the questionsit raises over the next few months. 

We held our ‘Timeline Event’ starting on Sunday 30 June after the 9.30am service and running over the week. As you can see from the pictures posted above, it proved a great success... and there was cake too! 

We are also compling a ‘demographic’ of our parish to see if we can discover new information or perhaps new places God is calling us to work in.

In all of this the PMC team kindly request your support and prayers as we continue to seek to know what exciting opportunities God might have in store for the parish.

If you have questions around any of the above, or if you want to be part of the PMC team...  then just ask Barry. 

Please find below a PPT for the first part of the process. Listening
