The above list is just some of the many activities where UC congregations express their commitment to mission in word and deed. This year congregations have the opportunity to listen, celebrate and reflect together on the many community building commitments generated by our gathered life, a rhythm of gathering and scattering, being called and sent.
The Urban Mission Network in partnership with Pilgrim Church and Synod resources are committed to developing the conversation about the nature of community engagement, developing partnerships with others and working for the common good.
The aim of this programme is to empower and encourage one another by telling stories, sharing insights, reflecting together and exploring our local theologies.
