Bill Crooks and Jackie Mouradian of Mosaic Creative recently facilitated a three day residential church and community mobilisation course at Ripon College, Cuddesdon. The emphasis was on the church in the UK but the group included participants from the Caribbean and India and the variety of experience in the room created an atmosphere for rich discussion and learning. Participants also received Mosaic’s new church and community resource for the UK, ‘Stories on the Street’ containing many creative Bible studies and participatory tools to help churches work alongside their communities. When asked what difference do think this approach can make to your church and community, one participant said,
“This offers a joyful approach to exploring change and a way forward rather than a guilt-based, despondent discussion”.
