Mission Shaped Ministry 2016!

Mission Shaped Ministry returns to Queensland in 2016. The course explores all aspects of imagining, starting and sustaining fresh expressions of church.

The 2016 course will take place in four parts:

  • Intro Intensive: March 18th (6.30-9.30pm) and 19th (9.00-4.30) (Holland Park)
  • Block 1: April 13-May 7 (Mt Gravatt plus field trip)
  • Block 2: June 1-June 20 (Indooroopilly plus field trip)
  • Block 3: July 13 – August 6 (Stafford plus field trip)

The intro weekend is a compulsory kickstart into the full course, but can also be taken as a stand-alone “taster” if you’d like to start exploring Fresh Expressions but can’t make the full schedule work.

Michael Moynagh: faith and leadership beyond the border

Beyond the border Michael Moynagh UCA Qld 2015

On 28th and 29th October, 2015, UK theologian and author leader Michael Moynagh joined us for two very special sessions exploring leadership and faith at and beyond the edges of the church.

When we talk about fresh expressions, what are the implications for leadership? When we meet people on the edge or, or beyond the church, what does faith look like? How can we grow faith in these “beyond the border” spaces?

Whether you are a minister or a lay person, if you are interested in how we go beyond our borders to engage the world outside, these events will be valuable.

Enjoy these two sessions with Michael. Recordings courtesy Trinity College Queensland.
