How are parishes successfully reaching their 21st century
neighbourhoods with God’s transforming love?
Missionary parishes transform lives and yield a growing army of disciples for whom worship and sacraments come to life and whose ministry and service flourishes.
Hosted by Ron Huntley, this series of live online talks and interviews explores signs of hope in our Church – globally, nationally and locally.
From the ‘imposed lockdown’ comfort of your home, be inspired by a hope-filled vision for your parish and discuss practical ideas with fellow leaders.
