Missionary parishes transform lives and yield a growing army of disciples for whom worship and sacraments come to life and whose ministry and service flourishes.

You are invited to a series of interactive sessions with global leaders in missionary parish renewal. From the fireside comfort of your home, be inspired by a hope-filled vision for your parish and discuss practical ideas with fellow leaders.

First four fortnightly sessions: Thursdays 2 July, 16 July, 30 July & 13 August

Guest speakers:
