Chris Barnett encourages you to consider the Messy Discipleship Book Launch (Item 1) taking place via Zoom on April 22 from 1.30pm AEST and to explore some great UCA resources (see Item 9.) In between you will also find plenty of ideas for upcoming weeks and much thought-provoking reading. As always, please feel free to share the links in any way with anyone you think might appreciate the content.
Not just for those involved in Messy Church, the NEW Messy Discipleship: Messy Church perspectives on growing faith book is relevant for anyone interested in the discipleship of people of all ages. This very special FREE Zoom launch event will include the opportunity to find out more about the book, engage with a number of the number of the contributors and connect with others interested in discipleship.
Those contributing to the launch event day will include:
► Lucy Moore (UK) Messy Discipleship – an overview
► Chris Barnett (AUS) All-Age Discipleship
► Sandy Brodine (AUS) Creativity & Discipleship
► Jocelyn Czerwonka (NZ) Hospitality & Discipleship
Nb. On Apr 29 at 7pm AEST we will be hosting our first fb Live Event – Preparing for Pentecost. Keep an eye on the Children and Families Ministry fb page for more info.
