Needs-based Evangelism

What would it look like for the gathered and sent church to seriously accept the call of Jesus 'to go and make disciples'? The word 'evangelism' evokes different responses some positive, some negative.  In this module we will show that evangelism is most natural response we can have to our call, and look at how we can find our unique voice. Over the sessions, we will explore the Mission of God, being relevant to our context, four dimensional listening and implicit and explicit evangelism.

Dates and Time: Tuesday evenings 7:00-9:30pm, 12th March - 9th April
