Over the last few years the Mission Shaped Ministry course has proved to be a very valuable resource in equipping people to consider the place of mission in their lives and in the life of the church.
The course has run on a number of occasions in the North West in cooperation with a number of ecumenical partners. The feedback from the last two MSM courses has been very positive with a number of participants commenting on the way that the course had enthused them to be involved in mission and also equipped them to take some very practical steps to be involved in mission in their local church.

The Dioceses of Blackburn and Carlisle, the Lancashire and Cumbria Methodist Districts and the URC North Western Synod 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.
See: www.freshexpressions.org.uk/missionshapedministry. This is a one year, part time course, and aims to equip both lay people and clergy to start fresh expressions of church in their own context.
The dates of the next course have not yet been confirmed, but once they are, details will be included here. Alternatively, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
A new course begins in January 2015. Bookings are now being taken and a leaflet giving further information and a booking form can be found here
This is an excellent course, open to anyone involved in leadership – including clergy and readers, but open to all.
