|Where is the Spirit blowing? What are the signs that this is the Spirit of God at work? What are the lessons God wants us to learn and share around?
These are the questions that the members of our Union’s Mission Initiative Group ask together. Aware and alert people, looking and listening, gather with National Team members at intervals through the year. Together, rehearsing and reviewing mission initiatives that are taking place among and beyond our churches, looking for convictions and practices that we all can learn from.
Effective mission is born when humble hearts seek the sovereign Saviour. Where prayerful cries of longing, to see lost souls saved, are matched with an attentiveness as to how the Holy Spirit would direct and enable us. The Mission Initiative Groups assists the National Team in looking to profile good practice, identifying initiatives that we can support and undertake together, using combined resources shared within our Union. The group also seeks to encourage missional thinking through occasional gatherings and conferences that report, encourage and develop initiatives in mission.
