Working in areas of new housing is like ‘stepping off the map’, says Alison Boulton.  Her experience of moving into the first house on a new estate in Swindon, of being literally off the map, means she understands the challenges of this work.  Ali will offer practical tips for individuals and teams building relationships, community and church from scratch.  God is already at work in that new community.  Ali will show how to listen to both God and the community, and to allow a model of church to grow from the community rather than imposing a model of church upon them.  John Bentley and Mark Bodeker will share their insights from working in new housing areas in the Oxford Diocese.
This course will equip clergy and church teams who may be feeling slightly daunted at the prospect of new estates to respond to the challenge.  Bring your team with you if possible.
Presenters: Alison Boulton is a regional minister for Southern Counties Baptist Association with responsibility for pioneering mission enabling.  She is co-author of the Grove booklet, Pioneering Ministry in New Housing Areas John Bentley is a Church Army officer, the ‘evangelistic arm’ of the Church of England.  He has a specific role of creating community on the new estate of Kingsmere, Bicester Mark Bodeker is Associate Minister for the Community Church on Great Western Park, Didcot Martin Gorick is Archdeacon of Oxford and co-ordinates the diocese’s response to areas of new housing
