BISHOP’S COMMISSION FOR MISSION (BCM) – new training sessions starting in the summer
As a Diocese and a Partnership of Parishes, we want to equip members of our church communities to live the mission of Jesus.
Many who would not come near to the church as institution will have contact with Christians in their daily lives. We want to enable members of the Diocese to take the opportunities to share
the love of Christ in deed and word as they serve in their church and community. This programme is a way of recognising and affirming people in their ministries, providing some input/resource and sending them out, encouraging them to continue in that work
The programme for the Bishop’s Commission for Mission Training for the summer term has been released – and it is at Highcliffe – not too far away.
Our current BCMs are making a significant contribution to our ministry, in Worship Leading, Pastoral Visiting and Children’s Work.
However, we would love to encourage more.
Personal invitation is often the best way to lead people on in their ministry and personal development.
So, is there someone in our congregation whom you might encourage to apply for the Worship or Children, Families and Youth streams this summer?
There is a Taster Evening (with no obligation to join afterwards) for any who might be interested on 15th April at St Mark’s Highcliffe from 7pm to 8.30pm. This is open to all and is an opportunity to find out more about the BCM and how it works. Please can you share this information with anyone you think might be interested – let someone on the Ministry Team know if you would like to go.
Could you have a think and pray, and speak to anyone who might be suitable. They can then talk to any of the Ministry Team to find out more.
