Please note that this section is about to be updated.  Within the dnext 48 hour a video of the presentation will be added to thispage.  Please revisit.

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.


In addition to the video that will be added soon, there are various pdf documents that you can download that are referred to in the webinar, and other relevant free downloads.  We are always open to learn of other creative ways of sharing the good news about Jesus Christ, so please share yours with us.
