Consult with the synod team via the mission enabler

The Synod “Way Forward” emphasises the need to find a sustainable future for our churches and adaptability and creativity are key to this. The Synod has a team of people with a wealth of gifts and experiences to help churches take steps to begin their mission journey from church to community.

The Synod mission enabler is there to do exactly that – to enable mission! To walk alongside churches and to support them to discover their purpose, their mission and to help discover the gifts within and without the church that can help serve the Kingdom of God in that place!

They are available to run workshops, elders’ meetings, church meetings and to help build capacity for mission and are willing to walk alongside congregations as they work through this process.

The Synod has released some of its financial resources to help churches engage in mission effectively. These come in the form of church property grants and mission grants. Details of how to apply for these can be found by following the link below.
