Understanding your Context

Doing Mission at the Local Level

Doing Mission at the Local Level
Successful fresh expressions and mission initiatives begin with Christians listening both to God in prayer and to the people in the community they feel called to serve. This process allows them to find contextual ways to love and serve the people around them, a more effective approach than simply taking an off-the shelf model of mission and launching it at their unsuspecting parish.

Who lives in your community and what are their needs? Do you live in a village with a predominantly elderly population, or are you in a more urban setting with a high influx of people commuting in to work? What do the community gatekeepers such as local councillors, shop-keepers or residents associations see as the gaps in provision?

This course will help you through this process of discernment, and will allow time for you to reflect on your own context. You will be equipped to listen missionally, ensuring that any subsequent initiative is genuinely rooted in the needs of your community.

Phil is soon to become rector of the Avon River Team. Paul is pioneer minister with Poole Missional Communities in an inner-city urban setting with large-scale new housing developments. Both are Fresh Expression Associates.
