What are Missional Communities?


Christian faith has a corporate expression as well as being a personal journey – Romans 12 describes us as the body of Christ together. We believe real community is an essential building block of the church and mission is the call of the church. Missional Communities are a place where we can love God and love our neighbour – together we grow in our faith and are a blessing as we serve our local neighbourhood or relational network. They are a place where we can be known, supported and challenged to go deeper in our relationship with each other and to grow as disciples of Jesus.

Missional Communities can be the backbone of all missional and discipleship activity which goes on in a church. They are mid-sized communities, made up of people who find they have a similar missional heart, focus or calling in life. Crucially, they provide a real opportunity for people to live out and discover a God-given calling and to engage in mission, seeking to grow through new disciples of Jesus. Missional Communities are a great way to deepen discipleship, release missional lay leaders, raise participation and release the body of Christ into God’s adventure – missional living through personal faith & committed community!
