Mission Pioneer Learning Day March 2016
Posted on July 15, 2016
A Mission Pioneer learning community day was held in March 2016. We were fortunate to have two mission pioneer practitioners meet with us to share their experiences. One was Rev Deacon Aimee Kent of Grace Community Uniting Church in Goulburn which has a number of Fresh Expressions of Church within the community, for example Gaming Church, Cafe Church, Outdoor Adventure Church and others. It was really interesting to hear how this developed, and what are the ongoing strengths and challenges. The other practitioner was Rev Ben Thow who felt called to move with his family to live as a member of the Redfern community. Again, great learnings were gained from his presentation, particularly regarding the way he has become known and trusted in the community, and the process of developing Church in his home. Have a look at the clip we made of the day!
