For Such A Time As This is our strategy for resourcing your mission, supporting you to respond to the good news of God's love in Christ using the gifts and talents that God has given you. We know it is easy to be overwhelmed by the challenges before us, to feel powerless or despondent.
But we believe that God has made us who we are, has called each of us by name, and will equip us with as much as we need to live out our vocation. We draw inspiration from the Old Testament story of Esther who risked her own life to use the limited influence she had to save her people from genocide. God does not need someone better than you. There is no need to wait for a more opportune time. God has prepared you and directed your time to be God's agent right here and now: for such a time as this.
Your district is here to support you in this. Right now we are focusing on:
GROWING DISCIPLES fostering a restored culture of high-quality small group and personal discipleship, nurturing leaders and bringing access to any training you need
PASSIONATE CONTEXTUAL WORSHIP sharing best practice so our acts of worship are occasions when we expect to encounter the presence of God, supporting growth of complementary dispersed and gathered worship
SHARING STORIES making testimony normal, sharing stories, making communication easy and creating a culture of invitation to relationship with Christ
TRANSFORMING MISSION encouraging and equipping innovators breaking new group, asking searching questions and embracing change
SIMPLIFYING PROCEDURES to release your time and energy for sharing stories, passionate contextual worship and transforming mission
PROPERTIES FIT FOR MISSION making your premises fit for your missional needs and reducing our carbon footprint
