16 February 2019–22 June 2019

London City Mission, London SE1 2AH


Optional, Moorlands College Certificate

Our Christian Community Development and Evangelism Certificate has been designed with you in mind. Run in partnership with The Message and London City Mission, this course will help you engage with the spiritual challenges of your local community.

God is always at the centre of our communities whether we recognise him or not. He always has been and always will be until the end. His aim has always been Holy ‘Common Unity’. We need to get in step with Him. By us following Jesus (Heb.12:2) and being filled with the Holy Spirit we can be ready as God unleashes His sovereign power – even in the most hostile neighbourhoods. Let us prayerfully move forward, directed by Him for His Glory.

Choose to attend either individual Saturdays or all six sessions—or study it as an accredited course. First select a date on the right, then choose the appropriate ticket.

The accredited course involves six written assignments and requires attendance of all six sessions. No lunch included, but you are welcome to bring your own.

Please note: The January date is no longer running and the course will now be starting from February.

Teaching Team

Sessions will be lead by experienced trainers from Moorlands College, The Message Trust, London City Mission and Christian Concern.

Course content

16 February 2019: Applied theological tools of the trade
Colin Bennett, Moorlands College
Explore the applied theological challenges associated with Christian community development and evangelism. It will be an interactive day to help you begin to apply the Bible and a theology of community engagement to your own community situations.

16 March 2019: Upside down Kingdom
Helen Thorne, London City Mission
Evaluate your own community’s resilience in the light of the Gospel and the Kingdom message of Jesus. This will help you understand in more depth topics such as asset development, community profiling and disunity in community.

27 April 2019: Making disciples
Andy du Feu, Moorlands College
Look at how the Gospel and community work are best served by community profiling, and explore barriers to unity in communities by examining diversity/unity tensions.

18 May 2019: Church at the centre
Jamie Sewell and Theresa Williams, The Message Trust
Place the Church at the centre of your thinking about Christian community work and evangelism. There will be a focus on Church engagement in its widest sense—even to the extent of community enterprise and regeneration.

22 June 2019: Politics and activism
Colin Bennett, Moorlands College
Reflect on a range of practical issues a Christian community activist may face, and examine the current state of Christian welfare. We’ll also consider whether Christians should be engaged with politics. Share your learning with each other in small groups and action plan your next steps.
