The Practice of Christian Mission in Britain and Europe

11 - 15 July 2022

Intensive Online, Mon-Fri, 9am-1pm

We all make mistakes.  Do you ever wish you had a time machine so you could go back and do things differently?  Or perhaps just an opportunity to think about things that went wrong and what you could do (if anything) to correct them, whilst still doing the things that you think you did right. That is what reflective practice is about - the act of thinking about our experiences in order to learn from them for the future. 

At a time when Brexit, Covid, and the Ukraine War are changing our context for mission in Britain and Europe more than at any time since WWII, we need to stop and reflect deeply on our mission practice.

If you are engaged in Christian mission in Britain and Europe today, this short course gives you that opportunity. 

This module encourages you to think afresh about what it means to do evangelism, discipleship, church planting, refugee ministry, in fact, any activity that communicates the good news of Jesus.  As well as reviewing the diversity and complexity of mission practice in contemporary Britain and Europe, the module will give you the tools to critically evaluate mission practice, both your own and that which you encounter being done by others.  A key feature is understanding the contribution that Majority World Christians are making to the re-evangelisation of Britain and Europe and how we can learn from each other. Ultimately, the module seeks to help you apply all the lessons learned to your current and future mission initiatives.

This module will feature Usha Reifsnider, Co-Regional Director for Lausanne Europe, as guest lecturer. Usha is a British South Asian Christ-follower from a Hindu background. Her various roles in ministry include serving as a director with the Centre for Missionaries from the Majority World (CMMW), training churches and para-church agencies on mission to, through, from and with diaspora people groups.
