We ask that children do not run in the foyer or auditorium and move carefully
through the courtyard area where there are hot drinks. Please also be mindful of
your children when morning tea is being served, so we can provide a respectful
environment for everyone.
SCC value & love families & children ... your help in making church a fun but safe
place is appreciated!

3DM Missional Communities
30th April 2015
Here at Southport we believe that the key to a thriving missional movement is
to learn to disciple well.
In November 2014 we hosted a workshop led by 3DM from Sheffield, England.
They shared how over the last 20 years they have learned to use Huddles (a
discipleship vehicle) and Missional Communities (a missional vehicle) to see
discipleship and mission come alive in church communities in the UK, Europe
and the USA.
For those who missed the session in November, and would like to attend,
another workshop is being held on April 30th 9am-4pm at Sunnybank Baptist
Church, 127 Nemies Road, Runcorn.
The workshop will have teaching, discussion, breakout time with your team,
networking, the chance to actually experience Huddles and hear the key
principles of Missional Communities. With social time built in, it will be a great
way to build relationship as well as get input from the team.
If you are unable to attend during the day, there will be a free seminar in the
evening (7pm-9.30pm) which will provide an overview.
If you want more information please contact Bruce Murray 55646222 or register
