What is Mission?

These papers demonstrate a discussion in mid-flow. These are not conclusions, but are insights into the lively and constructive discussions that have been taking place. They are given here for the benefit of congregations and commissioners.

Should you wish to feedback, please email the Mission Forum.

These questions were developed from five sentences that the Forum is seeking to articulate:

1. Mission is…
2. Mission as…
3. Mission through…
4. Mission with…
5. Mission in…

Again, these statements were intentionally open in order to facilitate a much wider discussion in the Church. However, the Forum seeks to bring a sufficient degree of content in order to invigorate and guide a discussion that for many is already taking place within their local context. With this in mind, the sources of the discussions have ranged from Biblical refection, theological insights, practitioners stories, and tradition. The emphasis on equal ownership of mission from throughout the Church is reflected in the wide range of sources and stories.
