Mission Shaped Ministry CourseMission Shaped Ministry Course

The Methodist Church and URC in Greater Manchester and area are 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 will come as this will deepen the impact of the course.

Who is it for?

  • Experienced pioneers who want to reflect on what they are doing;
  • Those wanting to learn qualities of Christian ministry;
  • Christians who want their churches to be more effective in mission;
  • All denominations, traditions and ages;
  • Urban, suburban and rural contexts.

Features of the course

  • Designed for busy Christians;
  • Delivered ecumenically;
  • Local and national teachers;
  • Reflection on your context and story;
  • Varied learning styles and resources;
