The invitation went out nationwide to come explore whether a role in one of our Small Missional Communities might be something God is calling you to. We are looking to recruit new members to lead and develop the ministry of our existing incarnational communities in Birmingham and Bristol, and to several new communities we are developing in deprived urban areas in the UK. About 40 people excited about urban mission and building community joined in the conversation on the day.
The packed programme included: shared prayer and worship, the basics of why “Small, Missional, Community” is important to God, stories of existing and new SMCs, prayer walks, a visit to the Aston community house and small group discussions about being a disciple in a SMC.
Feedback was positive as people commented it was a day well spent and they were glad they made the journey.
And this is what Birmingham looked like that same day (external video):
