mission shaped ministry

A year to be equipped in planting and sustaining fresh expressions of church

mission shaped ministry is a one-year, part-time course which takes people on a learning journey as part of a supportive community, training them for ministry in fresh expressions of church. Run ecumenically, msm has been presented over 100 times across the UK with more than 3,300 participants - and it is also offered internationally.

Those who come on mission shaped ministry tend to do so:

  • as individuals and as teams;
  • as leaders and members, clergy and lay people, learning side by side;
  • as they prepare to start a fresh expression of church;
  • once they have already started a fresh expression of church;
  • because they want their existing church to be more mission-shaped.
