SPRING MISSION IDEAS
This page links to one of our webinar series where we explore how to enhance missional activity by working with the seasons and making the seasons work for us.
Each session reflects on the season of the year, the key events from the church calendar, the key events in our local communities, and the key events in the wider civic calendar. Against that background there are a range of ideas that can be easily applied to a rural or small church.
On this page you will find a video recording of the live webinar, various pdf cocuments that you can download that are referred to in the webinar, and other relevant free downloads.
