Southwark 2020

The Diocese of Southwark is delighted to make msm available locally. We believe it will be a significant resource for building the Kingdom of God in this area. Individuals are most welcome, but we particularly hope that small groups from a church or fresh expression Church (fxC) will come as this will deepen the impact of the course.

The course leaders and teachers include:

Revd Canon Will Cookson, Bob and Mary Hopkins, Revd Ian Mobsby.

I warmly commend to you this latest cycle of the immensely popular Mission Shaped Ministry course which will help those participating to grow in confidence in exploring Mission and possibilities for starting a fresh expression of Church.

The Rt Revd Christopher Chessun, Bishop of Southwark

I found the MSM course to be invaluable … great teaching, lots of opportunities to meet others. The speakers were interesting and inspiring, and the course helped us challenge the way we have always approached mission.

Carolyn Churchyard, Lay Participant

MSM gives good foundations for starting a fresh expression of church. It really helps to do the course with others so you can have your imagination sparked, knock ideas round and get cracking on a new adventure to reach out to people beyond the walls of the church.

Jonny Baker, Director of Mission Education, CMS

The next big step in taking fresh expressions of church forward is making the right kind of training available in everypart of the country. msm is making a major contribution here and I’m delighted to commend it.

Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury 2002-12

I wholeheartedly recommend this course, designed to equip all God’s people to establish authentic and effective Church for this and future generations.

Stuart Bell, Leader, Ground Level

More and more Christians are being led by God to plant, sustain and lead fresh expressions of church. The course is a crucial means by which the Holy Spirit is preparing them for this calling. Go for it!
