Partnership with Cliff College
Tuesday 1st October saw the launch of a pioneering new project as Ben Hulme was commissioned to be a Mission Intern for the churches of Union Mills, Onchan, and Baldrine.
In the first project of it's kind across the Connexion, the Isle of Man Methodist Church has been working in partnership with Cliff College to create this post which will see Ben, a Cliff College student, working with the churches to gain some practical experience which will contribute towards a Diploma awarded by Cliff College.
The focus of Ben's work among us will be to help each church prayerfully discern how they can increase their missional outreach in their communities in ways which are practical, achievable, and sustainable into the future.
There is a great deal of anticipation about the weeks ahead, as we look forward to seeing this work develop.
