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. You may be sensing that God is calling you to get involved in a specific type of mission service, perhaps in another country. Or maybe you’ve already had a particular experience of cross-cultural mission and as a result, you feel inspired to live differently at home.

…consider how to take your engagement in God’s mission to a deeper level…take time away from the chaos, to be still and listen to God, to look into mission.

Going Global aims to help you explore such issues; it offers you the chance to take time away from the chaos, to be still and listen to God, to look into mission. 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.

So who is it for?

Going Global is aimed at those who are thinking about their part in God’s mission and are asking ‘What next?’

In particular, the event is designed with three main types of people in mind:

- Those who are exploring the possibility of some form of mission service in another place, whether for short-term or long-term.

- Those who have returned home after some form of mission service elsewhere, (whether on a team, or some form of mission placement), and want to consider how their experiences can impact their life and mission in their Irish context.

- Those who simply want to think more deeply about ‘mission’ and what it might mean for them.

What happens?

During the weekend, we will spend some time sharing stories and experiences together and looking at some biblical principles for mission. There will also be seminars on the Saturday afternoon – to address the questions of the 3 groups of people outlined above. And for those who want to have an individual discussion with a CMS Ireland staff member or one of our former Mission Partners, there will be an opportunity for such a conversation. But of equal importance is the time that will be spent chatting with other ‘explorers’, in a relaxed and informal environment.

The theme of the weekend is ‘Looking into mission’ ‐ the hope is that the things we think about will translate into action. Over the two days we will: Look up to the God of mission; Look out on a world of need and opportunity; Look back on our own experiences in mission; Look forward to what God is calling us to do.

Where is it?

The Kilcronaghan Activity and Conference Centre is located just outside Tobermore, near Magherafelt in County Londonderry. The centre is clean and comfortable and all bed linen is provided. To keep costs down, we will be using twin rooms where possible. For more information on the venue, you can visit their website.

When is it?

Going Global will take place from 11am on Saturday 15th October to 2:30pm on Sunday 16th (departing after lunch).

We would enourage you to come for the whole event – the late night for chatting on Saturday and the Sunday morning sessions are all important parts of the programme. However, if you reallly aren’t able to stay for Sunday’s sessions, we would still encourage you to sign up for Saturday.

How much does it cost?

If you earn a wage, the cost is: £40 for the full programme; £25 for one day.

Otherwise, the cost is: £30 for the full programme; £20 for one day.
