Learning Together: June 2020
We can't do what we usually do right now. And if, as expected, social distancing measures remain for some time, our church buildings may remain closed for months yet. What does this mean for God's mission through the church?
The District Missioner Community and Learning Network, in collaboration with the Ministry: Vocation and Worship Team and Evangelism and Growth Team, bring you a series of webinars this spring and summer to explore this issue and the many questions which arise. Topics that have just been published include:
