Feedback from previous Going Global events:

“For a while, I’d had a notion of doing some sort of short-term mission placement, but had never got round to thinking it through properly. Going Global gave me time and space to do just that – it helped me to take things to the next step.”

“Going Global was a very relaxed and encouraging ‘time out’ – it challenged my thinking about mission.”

“I found Going Global really helpful – especially the informal chat with former Mission Partners, who were able to share their experiences and answer my questions.”

If you would like to explore what it means to get involved, more deeply, in cross-cultural mission then the Going Global weekend might just be for you.

Going Global is an event organised by CMS Ireland to help you consider how to take your engagement in God’s mission to a deeper level. This ‘half-weekend’ is an opportunity for you to explore what, on earth, God might be calling you to.

Perhaps you’re beginning to look at the options for the first time, maybe you’ve been thinking about things for a while – you might even have served on a short-term mission placement or taken part in a META…whatever your situation we’d like to help you think through ways of playing your part in God’s global story.

The theme of the event is ‘looking into mission’. Through a short programme of seminars, informal coversations and bible reflections, we’ll be looking up to the God of mission, looking out on a world of need, looking back on our previous experiences in mission and looking forward to what God might be asking us to do next.

The Going Global weekend is a place for you to reflect on your experiences and perceptions of global mission and to think about some of the ways in which to take things further.

During the weekend, there will be opportunities to meet others with an interest in global mission, to hear about CMS Ireland’s mission placement opportunities and consider how God is calling each of us to get going with mission, whether at home or somewhere else.

Cost:

£40 waged; £30 unwaged
