Mission Shaped Ministry

The Mission Shaped Ministry (MSM) course is a learning experience up to a year long for all who are seeking to improve their skills for engaging in mission within our contemporary culture.

The aim is to enable folk to become part of renewing the inherited church or planting fresh expressions of church.

This nationally recognised course is produced by national Fresh Expressions initiative and is a partnership of different denominations including the Methodist and United Reformed Church.

Read what Revd Trish Ollive and Revd David Keen have to say about MSM in their testimonial.
