CENTRAL NEWS Mission Review Edition

The latest edition of CENTRAL NEWS has a very different intention behind it to usual (please see this link http://tinyurl.com/ybzowzhr). You will see that it is entitled ‘CHURCH MISSION REVIEW EDITION’, and the hope is that it will be a tool that will be used by the leadership team of your church, and perhaps the whole church community. We live in a context and culture that is rapidly changing, and the place and effectiveness of our churches within that has altered immeasurably in the last 50 or so years. This CENTRAL NEWS comes as an attempt to encourage each church to start asking important questions about how to ‘connect’ missionary with a culture that is increasingly disconnected from the Christian faith we cherish.

provides not only a lifeline for many a church and ministry, but also is a symbol of our shared journey. We need your help!

40 Days of Daring Greatly 

40 Days of Daring Greatly was an initiative in 2016 that saw a number of churches engaging in stepping out from their safe places into their communities. This link takes you to some of the resources used and stories of what happened.

New Ways of Being

The  Baptist Union claunched ‘crossing places’, Anglicans & Methodists called it ‘Fresh Expressions’. Whatever we call it there is a great need to think outside the box in terms of ‘church’. Check out our BLOG for ideas.


What are the ideas that are working right now in the churches of the association and beyond? The CBA FaceBook page is a great place to get to get a ‘feel’ for what is happening, but here we will include some of those ideas that we perceive are gaining traction.
