I am writing to brief you on stage two of the Experiences of
Ministry Project, i.e. the 2013 Experiences of Ministry Survey (EMS), and to
ask for your help to promote participation. The survey was sent out on
the 13th June.
I am acutely conscious that over the last 12 months a range of
surveys both local and national have been sent out – particularly the Church
Commissioners’ Church Growth Research (http://www.churchgrowthresearch.org.uk/).
There’s good news in that we have attempted to make sure that the various
strands of work will inform one another and when it comes to reporting on the
research this will be evident. However, I am also conscious of the dangers of
survey fatigue. I am therefore particularly grateful for any support you can
offer, e.g. putting it in newsletters and on your diocesan CMD pages.
The research has produced a rich picture of clergy experiences of
ministry that has helped to inform various strands of work. These have ranged
from the recent national consultation on Self-Supporting Ministry (http://www.ministrydevelopment.org.uk/a_new_pattern_of_priesthood)
to local briefings with Bishop’s staff teams, and in at least one diocese,
using it as evidence to support the case to invest more in their clergy.
Living the Christ Story in
the 21st Century is a day
conversation in York on Wednesday 3 July exploring the nature of mission of
Christ in our fast-evolving cultures. It will be an opportunity for innovators
and would-be innovators in mission in the North of England to gather, encourage
each other, make links and share stories, questions and insights.
The core of the day will be a
series of short presentations by practitioners engaging in mission with
imagination and authenticity in their own contexts, followed by Q&A and
The day is organised by CMS
Missional Communities Orders and Projects with the Spurriergate Centre in York
and partnered by Fresh Expressions and Methodist Venture FX.
Thanks to the generosity of
the Spurriergate Centre and our venue - the Central Methodist Church York -
there's no charge for the day.
We think that this will be an inspiring
day - a great opportunity to sense together where the Missio Dei* may be
calling us, to share what you are doing, to inspire and to be inspired
- and we hope that you can join us!
*Missio Dei: the mission of God, the mission is God's mission
