September  10,  2017.  Mission Discernment Update

On 30 July we conducted our fifth mission discernment forum, “Wheat from Chaff”. We received a synthesis document (“Writing our next chapter”) summarising the discoveries we’d made about our faith, ethos, our goals for the world, our missional ethics, and our place within our neighbourhood and the wider city. We looked at a list we’d compiled on “things that God already is doing around us”. Reflecting on all this in groups, we began to articulate what, perhaps, the Spirit was saying to the church - what new thing we might be being called to do in faith.

A new document (click the link below) attempts to summarise that first articulation. On Sunday 17 September we’ll give time in worship to thinking more about the major themes that seem to have emerged. After the service we’ll have a post-it note board for people to post responses (for a week or so) - so that we can put further detail to some of our preferred mission possibilities and blow away some remaining chaff.

June  30,  2017.  Mission discernment preparation



From March to June of 2017, about thirty Knox members attended four mission discernment forums, designed to help us plan the first post-quake chapters of our faith community’s life. The document (link below) presents some of the major themes and questions-in-progress that emerged. It is provided to stimulate prayerful thinking prior to our fifth forum: “Wheat from chaff”, during which we will work out what emerging material is important to us and where it might lead us. Please download it, and give particular consideration to the “news stories” and “intentional seeing” material near the end. The last “Spirit-catching” forum is on Sunday 30 July.
