Local Missioner Network

The Local Missioner Network is an informal gathering of ordinary people who would love to see our local churches flourish and grow as we discern the extraordinary movement of God. It is a new partnership between the Diocese of Chester and The Light Project.

You don’t need to be trained or an expert to join this network, just someone who would love others to experience Christianity and through it, Jesus. We realise that not everyone can manage to study on a formal course, so this network seeks to bring together mission minded people in order to equip and encourage us together for our local churches.

Maybe you have never completed a course but would love to connect and chat with others as you explore what mission might look like for you. It may be that your church wants to start something new and you want to get alongside some like-minded people with ideas and tips. Maybe you have already completed a course or have experience of mission or evangelism but find yourself isolated, uninspired or lacking in resources and ideas.

Whatever your motivation, the network gathers Local Missioners together once a month in the evening for a series of workshops, idea sharing sessions, prayer, worship and fellowship. We will meet at Foxhill – Christian centre for prayer, study and mission.

The meetings will take place from 6.30pm – 9pm on the following:

  • 15th February – Setting the Scene/Questions/What is Mission and Evangelism today?
  • 15th March – Prayer and Mission
  • 19th April – Reaching Families with Young Children (Café Church/Kids Church/Messy Church/Who Let the Dad’s Out)
  • 17th May – Reaching Young People
  • 21st June – Fresh Expressions/Mixed Economies and Blending
  • 20th September – Theology of Mission
  • 18th October – Coherent Parish Mission Plans (The Field)
  • 15th November – Growing Disciples / Retaining New Christians

If you would like to become a Local Missioner yourself, just start by exploring the possibility, or know of someone in your church who may benefit from attending this gathering, then please get in touch with us by calling Anne Cody at Church House on 01928 718834 ext 263 or e-mail anne.cody@chester.anglican.org.

Manageable Mission

A weekend or day course for churches or leadership groups looking to explore what mission and evangelism might look like in their context.

We bring a small team and through workshops, discussion idea sourcing, we help the group think through and come up with manageable ways to let their community know about Jesus. This course works beautifully with churches looking at their mission planning and strategy for growth as it gives them a great working way of understanding mission and setting realistic goals.

The Brighter Course

Brighter is a course for churches over 3 weeks for 6 hours, so nothing huge really…

It’s for Christians who wonder how they may shine for others to see and experience their faith. It involves looking at creative ways of connecting faith (lots of permission given for those who have gifts and abilities and wonder how to use them for the benefit of others…) It recognises the need for Holy Spirit help in connecting the good news and acknowledges new ideas he adventure of partnering in God’s mission and looks for divine appointments in every day to day life. The course challenges the notion that evangelism is for experts who are extroverts and is very interactive working on discussion and investigation.

Known and Loved

A free course for small groups to prepare them to do something that will show others that they are known and loved by God. Download the matarials here

 

“Each year we agree to take a specific number of students on these courses; we are looking for the right people who are willing to learn and grow in their faith, not just do a course”.
