COVID-19 catalyses change – what does this mean for church & mission?

It is not the first time the church has been in lockdown. What can we learn now? Have we simply moved our services and mission online? This virtual public square has certainly increased exposure and access, with amazing sharing of resources and information. People can pick and choose who they listen to and when they link in. Technology is rapidly opening doors and improving access. Alongside this alarm bells ring. Will there be great competition? What impact will the virtual engagement have? How does this affect mission?

Now is the time for an in-depth discussion, where together we can listen to the global and national church. We can discern and reimagine what church and mission needs to be in the weeks and months to come.

All Nations Christian College invites you to join us as we wrestle with these important questions, seeking God’s guidance to prepare and direct us in the paradigm shift we are entering.

3 webinars

Together with our partners, All Nations is facilitating a series of 3 webinars that will explore the change that is happening, the change that is required, and the way ahead. Our contributors will be tasked with the role of exploring what this all means for church and mission – and daring to reimagine where we need to go. We anticipate robust debate and prophetic insight. This is a critical discussion which we highly recommend you participate in.

All Nations will be collating materials, articles and resource links to enable further research and reflection for all.
