Pioneering Parishes: Culture Change in Practice

A series of four webinars for church leaders grappling with the challenge of developing a pioneering culture and a mixed ecology of church. Discussion is facilitated to enable experiences and wisdom to be shared while receiving encouragement through ideas and case studies. Participants receive tools to enable lasting culture change.

When is it?

The course begins on Monday 16 September and is for a total of four sessions:

Dates: 16, 30 September and 14, 28 October 2024

Times: Each session begins at 12.00 pm and continues until 1.30 pm

NB. The first session starts 15 minutes early.

Who’s it for?

It is suitable for anyone looking to join in with the Holy Spirit’s re-imagining of a new way of being church together.

PCC members, area and lay deans, parish priests, diocesan advisers, pioneers – lay and ordained. If you have previously completed the First Steps course this course is the perfect follow up. However, you don’t have to complete the First Steps course to take part. If you’re not sure if the course is suitable for you, please email us: pioneering.parishes@churchmissionsociety.org

What can I expect?

Each webinar is 90 minutes and contains teaching, guest speakers and break out rooms. You will receive a fresh set of lenses for viewing parish life and hear case studies from practitioners in an informal, warm, fun and open environment.

What content will be covered?

Culture Change in Practice offers additional concepts and tools for leading congregations through processes of change. The course opens up conversations about postures and practices that support the development of a culture of cross-cultural mission and innovation. Guests will join us to share insights from their experience and practice.

Where is it? Takes place via Zoom.

How much does it cost?

We would hate cost to be a barrier to anyone attending so we charge just £10 for the four webinars in total. If you bring a team, the maximum your church will pay is for five spaces (£50), any additional participants are free. Teams will receive a Group Booking Form to add the details of additional participants, this will need to be returned 1 week prior to the start date. The real cost for the facilitation and materials is much higher, so if you feel able to contribute a little more you will be helping to support the continuing work of Pioneering Parishes.

Ticket sales close: 9 September 2024! (Group Bookings 4 September 2024)
