New series: What is mission?

For our Sunday services in September we will be focusing on a crucial question: What is Mission?

It has been famously said “It’s not that the church of God has a mission, but that the God of mission has a church”. In other words, our God is a missionary God. So it’s not for us as a local church to decide what our mission might be. It’s for us to understand what our God of mission is doing and join in with Him.

This September we are launching our 3rd Sunday Missional Groups initiative, in which we will be encouraging each other to gather in groups to engage in missional activity together, out and about in our community.

To help us understand what this might involve and what it could look like, in this series we will explore four aspects of God’s on-going mission to the world that He made and that He loves; the world that God loved so much that He sent His only Son into it. The world in which, by His Spirit, He is actively at work today, right here in Wokingham.
