PMC ‘What’s God up to here?’ Day

On Saturday 30th April, as part of the Partnership for Missional Church (PMC) initiative, people gathered in St John’s for a half-day of discernment looking at What’s God up to Here?

There were around 50 attendees from the three CTM congregations who gathered in small groups around tables to hear reports from the earlier phases of PMC and to discern together where and how God is currently at work within this parish.

These discussions were structured around a brainstorm and a ‘floated conversation’, outputs from both of which were gathered for each table. These detailed outputs are collected together in later sections of the full report (PDF download).

Across the groups there were a number of themes which stood out, along with a number of ideas which could usefully be actioned. Some of these action ideas will feed into subsequent phases of the PMC process, but there are others which could be taken up by groups within the congregations, and by the congregations’ leadership teams, to follow through on what God appears to be telling us.
