Forge Missional Discussion Sessions (April – July 2020)


‘Missional Discussion Sessions’

Who could have imagined when we launched the Forge Cymru missional training program that churches would be forced to adjust and reassess how we do church in such circumstances?

We sense this is maybe a ‘God moment’ for many of our churches who realise there are some big questions around ‘being the church’ when you can’t ‘go to church’ and what kind of church we might go back to when this is passed?

In response to a number of requests, we are also proposing to invite you to share in the missional discussion with a growing group of people who are keen to explore the implications of what a missional church look like here in Wales. This is entirely optional but we wanted to extend an open invitation to those who have already signed up for Forge Taster sessions.

The dates are as follows:

  • 2pm Thursday 23rd April – with Simeon, Marc & Rob – Cam hopes to join us.
  • Thursday 7th May – with Cam Roxburgh (2pm, 5 pm, 7 pm)

We are moving to the Zoom platform for our video-conferencing after some limitations of MS Teams. The Zoom platform will allow us to host smaller discussion rooms for greater interaction in both Welsh and English language.
