Mission Summer School recordings

The Mission Summer School was a week aimed at practitioners wanting to engage more deeply with the theology of mission and explore how it relates to their own practice. Also for those already studying, providing an opportunity to be immersed in the theology and practice of mission.

Participants said:

  • “Thank you so much for such a rich and brilliantly put together Summer School. It is so helpful and opening of the mind that when we finish I am not sure where to begin!!”
  • "Each passing day has been richer than the last."
  • "Rich insights and stories that challenged and enlightened."
  • "All Theology Colleges should include training like this for all students."
  • "To learn in a multi national / future way brings a breadth and depth that you do not always get in theological college."

The Summer School was structured around the 4 Cs of Commerce, Culture, Congregation and Compassion from the book ‘A Future Bigger than the Past’ by Sam Wells. Each morning Sam taught on each of those areas providing the framework for the day. Participants encountered churches/groups/organisations with a particular focus on the day’s theme. This included viewing activities, meeting people involved, hearing testimonies from the work, and engaging with some of the challenges and complexities involved.

Each evening we invited people to be part of a conversation about the theme of the day. We opened-up these conversations about practice and theology to include participants in discussion.

The Mission Summer School came from a partnership between HeartEdge and St Augustine’s College of Theology which provides in-depth and experiential engagement with the theology and practice of mission.
