For over a decade the mission shaped ministry course has been the catalyst behind new expressions of church being planted and established congregations experiencing renewal. Simon Goddard pioneered the online version of the course in 2015 and has since enabled more than 140 individuals to benefit from this new flexible mode of delivery.

Small groups gather in a home or church hall (with internet access) to participate in msm online together. When this group is able to include leaders from the church, and the permission to begin something new, this deepens the impact of the course even further. The modules are interactive and will be delivered live in a virtual ‘meeting room’ via the web, but recordings of the sessions and course notes will also be available. There is a Facebook group so that participants are able to ask each other questions and share their ideas and experiences, even after the course has completed.

The msm online course is hosted by Simon Goddard. The teaching team is ecumenical in nature, drawing upon the expertise of leaders within the fx movement.

The course runs over 15 Monday evenings and the next cohort begins in September 2020.

The course fee is £295 for each church, (permitting up to 5 people to participate) in addition to a registration fee of £36/person. There is an early bird discount of 15% off the course fee for those who register and pay a £50 deposit before 31st July 2020. You can pay your deposit below.
