A Welcome Service was held for WSC’s new students on Sunday 7th October at Carrville Methodist Church. Dr Joss Bryan preached on ‘Humility’ and Dr Andrew Lunn presided.
A ‘bring and share tea’ followed for all of the students, staff, friends and members of the WSC Comittee and Oversight Committee from around the region who came to support us.
Thank you to all who came we had a really great time of fellowship and worship together.
Fresh! An exciting new book which offers a strong rationale for fresh expressions and pioneer ministries rooted in scripture and in the breath of the Christian tradition.
Co-written by Andrew Roberts, National Director of Training for Fresh Expressions (who was a member of one of the first cohorts of students here at WSC and a current DThM student), Michael Volland, Director of Mission and Pioneer Ministry at Cranmer Hall, Durham and David Goodhew, Director of Ministerial Practice at Cranmer Hall, Durham, it offers practical guidance for anyone interested in starting and sustaining fresh expressions and pioneer ministries.
Fresh! comes out of the mature reflection of church leaders and theologians who have been active in such ministries over a number of years, showing how these ministries are integral to the work of the church both now and over the long term. This is combined with valuable practical advice – the best kind of practical theology.
“Three experienced practitioners offer theological reflection on some key questions along with practical insights gleaned from their own engagement with new forms of ecclesial community in a way that offers a valuable contribution to the ongoing conversation.”
Professor John Drane
