PressGo is planning an event for those involved in mission advising, strategic or mission facilitation in the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand in April 2016. The intention is to encourage, share resources and plan together. A number of challenges are before us and the risk is that we develop responses in our own context when our colleagues are working on exactly the same challenges. We can do better when we pool knowledge, experience and resources.
The first Inspiring Mission Network event will take place at St John’s in the City, Wellington from 10am Thursday 21 April till 12.30pm on Friday 22 April 2016.
The cost of the event will be subsidised by PressGo so that participants will only have to cover their own travel expenses. A large number of people responded to the early notice of this event, but we anticipate limiting registrations to ensure that the focus is on the broader issues of mission advising rather than mission planning for your own congregation.
We would like to see at least two people from each of the seven Presbyteries attend. It is not necessary for you to be employed as a mission advisor, but as a volunteer it is expected that you would have significant interest and involvement in this beyond your own congregation.
Please contact the PressGo Catalyst to discuss further or register for the event. Lisa can also be contacted on 027 4455 723.
