mission shaped ministry is a one-year, part-time course which takes people on a learning journey as part of a supportive community, training them for ministry in fresh expressions of church. Produced by the national Fresh Expressions team, msm has been presented hundreds of times across the UK with thousands of participants and it is also offered internationally.
Completion of this course may well give you the confidence to start or get involved in a fresh expression of church.
Fresh Expressions seeks to transform communities and individuals through championing, resourcing and multiplying new ways of being church. We work with Christians from a broad range of denominations and traditions and the movement has resulted in thousands of new congregations being formed alongside more traditional churches.
Those who come on mission shaped ministry tend to do so as church leaders or lay people, as individuals or in teams. Attendees may already have started a fresh expression of church, are seeking to start one or simply because they want their existing church to be more mission-shaped.
There are no academic pre-requisites although each participant will be expected to have the full support of their local church.
