Joining in with God's mission requires discernment and there are a number of tools, resources and people who can help churches discern how to plan their mission. We can't do everything, but we can notice what God's Spirit is doing in the world and join in.

The Write a great mission plan section of the website has a wealth of information and resources.

Many Districts have individuals who are appointed to roles with a focus on supporting Circuits and Churches in mission planning, such as District Mission Enablers. It is worth checking if your District has anyone who can support. The Learning Network and the Evangelism and Growth Team are also available to support mission and ministry reviews.
