  4. Kx Annual Family Community of Practice: Exploring Movement Dynamics with Alan Hirsch

    Hosted by Kx & Grow Central at Westwood Church Coventry

    What is it?

    A 2-day Community of Practice for experienced practitioners and church leaders with teaching, dialogue and reflections from Alan Hirsch, Rich Robinson and the Kairos Connexion team. We will be exploring the dynamics of building a movement of mission in our churches and other arenas of influence. As we embark on our 2018 Community of Practice we’ll be exploring together the 6 strands of missional DNA as we journey through what is, what could be and what will be. We’ll be thinking about what it means for us to be both missional and movemental in our local contexts, our wider regions and our nation. Using 3DM language we’ll be trying to unpack what it means for us to be red hot centres of mission so that we can see increasing missional expressions of church in our towns and cities. Bring your team and come and explore with us.

    Who is invited?
    • Kairos Connexion family churches
    • Church leadership teams who have been part of a 3DM or Kx Learning Community/Community of Practice.
    • Experienced practitioners who are leading out of the values of missional discipleship within the UK
