Pathways for Mission day

Last Thursday over 40 church and school leaders attended the Missional Pathway Induction Day at Emmaus House. Missional Pathways sit within the Creative Partnerships in Local Mission strand of the Diocesan vision to Make Jesus Known.

Missional Pathways are a designated group of churches, parishes, and schools collaborating together to trial different ways of working that will inform our thinking and generate learning. The aim is to develop good practice, enable cultural change, and increase the missional impact of our mission and ministry across a wider diocesan landscape.

The day introduced the principles that will shape the development of the Missional Pathways and was ground in a theological reflection by Paul Bradbury (Poole Missional Communities). Throughout the day leaders considered what is possible for us to achieve together by working across traditional boundaries to pioneer new ways of working. It was a day of energetic and rich conversation and questions.  Reflecting on the day, Jonathan Triffitt, Director of Mission and Ministry said, ‘the energy in the room was palpable and it was so encouraging to see church and school leaders coming from across the diocese to begin a shared- journey of discovering God’s preferred future for the communities that they serve in their shared commitment to Making Jesus Known.’
