Equipping you for a lifetime of good practice and learning in planting and sustaining fresh expressions of church.

mission shaped ministry is a learning journey in a supportive community to be equipped for a lifetime of good practice and learning in growing fresh expressions of church.

The Diocese of Monmouth and Newport and Lower Wye Methodist Circuit are delighted to make msm available locally. We believe it will be a significant resource for building the Kingdom of God in South East Wales. Individuals are most welcome, but we particularly hope that small groups from a church or fresh expression will come as this will deepen the impact of the course.
