New & Renewing Ministry

We are constantly trying to find new ways to express and celebrate faith in this modern age and to connect with people who are not in a Christian community. In all areas of our church we are committed to nurturing new Christian communities, and to support and develop ministries that renew the life of congregations as missional and disciple-making communities.

Our New and Renewing Catalyst, Rev Mat Harry, supports congregations and Presbyteries exploring and practicing different forms of Christian community, such as Café Church, Messy Church and Fresh Expressions.

Through insights gained Mat assists ministers and lay people to find new ways to gather and connect with local communities. He also partners innovative ministry teams with other like-minded groups to form new learnings within shared contexts.

This work is aimed at presbyteries, ministers, congregational leaders and any person with a passion for the gospel.
