Reimagining Church: shaped for mission – a free, downloadable, five session course Postcard front


How should the church respond to the changes in our culture?

What is the future of the church?

Many people are talking about the need to become more “missional”—but what does that mean, and how would we do it anyway?

Reimagining Church: shaped for mission is  for those who know something is wrong and want to understand what can be done about it. The first three sessions look at changes in our culture, the spiritual resources the church has to respond to the challenges, and what it means these days to be a “Christian.” Then participants explore some of the ways churches are already changing and adapting in order to be more effective. Finally, we consider what this might mean in our own situations.

Reimagining Church involves lots of group discussion, colourful visual presentations, thought-provoking video, Bible discussion, opportunities for prayerful reflection, and (of course!) refreshments.

Reimagining Church materials, teaching files, instructor notes etc. (but not the refreshments!) are all freely downloadable.

The experience of one course:

Bishop Linda Nicholls (Trent-Durham) has taught Reimagining Church four times in her deaneries. In these videos she explains her priorities, introduces the course, and we hear some participant feedback.

This may just be the most eye-opening course you ever take …for free!
