Those are the questions that mission shaped intro will help you answer. In just five evenings, and available in three locations in the diocese this autumn, mission shaped intro is a must for people who want to see their church thrive in new ways.

Evesham: Saturdays starting October 6 at 9.30 am to 12.30 pm in St. Peter's Bengeworth – contact Sarah Hewitt

Redditch: Mondays at The Bridge, Headless Cross, starting 1st October - contact Glenn Redding
Stourbridge: Wednesdays at St Thomas’ Church, Market St, start date tbc – contact Andrew Sillis or Tom Fish.

mission shaped intro (msi) helps people to reconnect with the communities they are called to serve and to re-imagine the forms of church that are needed for the 21st century. It takes you on a creative and reflective journey looking at the need for new ways of being church.

Note: If you’re thinking of doing the year-long mission shaped ministry (msm) course, msi would be a great taster. Full msm courses are currently planned for Evesham starting in January and in two or three other locations starting in autumn 2019.
