The purpose of a Learning Community or Community of Practice is to support and resource leaders and their communities on the journey of missional discipleship. They are mostly focussed on strategic planning and help to provide a culture of accountability and support across a wider cohort as we seek God to help us grow a culture of discipleship and mission.
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 your vision, bringing challenge and support to you in 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.
