The purpose of a Learning Community is to support and resource missional leaders and their communities on the journey of missional discipleship. They take place twice a year for a whole Saturday. Along with regular ‘huddles’ (small groups for leaders) they provide accountability and support as we grow a culture of discipleship and mission. We also provide a Community of Practice to cover other relevant issues facing leaders, These happen several times a year and are a much shorter (2 hour) session.
Gatherings normally contain some inspirational teaching content, but are mainly workshop, worship and group learning in which communities develop their own plans within a framework of consultation, shared ideas, plus mentoring from experienced community leaders. The Well Learning Community is a fun and effective way to build vision, bringing challenge and support to the process of growing a discipling culture as you lead out in mission and discipleship within your chosen neighbourhood or network.
If you have a sense that God may be calling you to help start or lead a missional community and would like to know more, talk to a community leader or to one of the leadership team.
