Transforming our Workplaces
Sorry about the sexist sign, but maybe there are less dangers with women at work!
Being and making disciples at work is fraught with all sorts of challenges, but the workplace is where the majority of men and women spend most of their waking time. What if we were able to equip all of our church members to be confident disciples, and disciple-makers, at work? It’s such a huge mission field, such an amazing opportunity for us to ‘Be, Do, and Say’ the gospel. It’s the place where we can grow in our Christlikeness, grow in our leadership, grow in acts of kindness, grow as kingdom culture transformers, and grow in our missional confidence. Unprecedented growth opportunities!
And yet how many of us could say that is a priority for us as churches is to equip our members for their life in the workplace? Probably not many, if any. Why not? Perhaps it’s because we are more interested in what our members can do for the church as volunteers or leaders, how they can contribute to our programmes, courses and structures. Maybe it’s just because we’ve never thought about it.
Well, our online November Kx Leaders' morning on Wed Nov 9th, with Mark Greene of the LICC, will help us do just this. It will hopefully be the start of a journey for many of us to see our members begin to have great impact where they work. We will be following it up with a variety of options so that the process of becoming ‘workplace-friendly churches’ can continue beyond that morning.
Do put the date in your diary and start to assemble the team of staff and others that you would like to bring to that morning.
Have a great summer.
