Genesis Mission Introduction SessionCathedral Centre, 3 Ford Street, M3 6DP
Saturday 27th November 2021
As part of Stage 4 of Hope in the Future, it is our intention to focus explicitly on missionary discipleship. By this we mean an integration of a newly formed or deepened missionary attitude, with practical tools and ways to share the Gospel sensitively and appropriately in everyday life.
Fr Jon and Michele will give an introduction to Genesis Mission and share how you can get involved.
After a successful pilot in the Diocese of Salford, we have trained local leaders to deliver the sessions. Come along to find out more and how you can get involved. If you do wish to take part, you can sign up after the session.
– There will be an opportunity to take part in the 7-week formation and training sessions in parish clusters/deaneries on Zoom.
– Participants have a go at the Genesis Mission in their locality.
– Teams meet once a month for prayer, feedback on how the conversations went, for spiritual reflection and planning.
At the session, Fr Jon and Michele will give an introduction to the Genesis Mission plus those who took part in the pilot will share their experience. There will be some workshop time and opportunity for question and answers. Tea/Coffee will be provided, please bring a packed lunch.
