PHASE 2 TRANSFORMING MISSION
The locations chosen for Phase 2 of Transforming Mission all have large populations, both within the towns themselves, but also in the surrounding parishes. There will be a sustained drive to share the learnings and experiences so that the surrounding areas will also benefit. These towns will all be home to substantial new housing developments in the next five years. Each of the towns has significant levels of deprivation and is home to significant populations of children, young families and, in all but one case, students.
We have been applying what we have learned in other comparable places, and to growing pioneering and prayerful leaders to minister in these and other contexts.
The strategy following the phase 2 funding is to create ‘resourcing churches’ in each of these new urban hubs. Each of them will deliver a mix of new projects aimed at revitalising existing church communities, a large number of both religious and social outreach projects.
Transforming Mission in Camborne will include establishing a pop-up presence through which the church will engage with the community, with a special focus on single parents and young people. It will aim to identify and train new leaders to start worshipping communities in the surrounding villages. In the larger villages the project will establish ‘rural hubs’ in existing churches and community buildings such as schools, pubs and family centres. The church will also develop effective connections with all the schools in the area, as well as with the three local family hubs (formerly Children’s Centres). Key to the strategy will be providing teaching and support to enable congregation members to be confident in talking about their Christian faith.
