Springfield is centred on Missional Communities. These are an extension of our Cell groups that we have been running for many years. The idea of Missional Communities are that they are life-giving expressions of Church. We are finding Missional Communities to be vital to building a healthy church; balancing our needs with the needs of others inside and outside the church.
Purpose and belonging
We have found that Missional Communities have a high sense of purpose and belonging as people gather around a vision for the impact that they can have in the community. This focus can consist of a vision for a purpose such as social action, serving a people group or an area. We find that as these communities journey together they grow in their faith, connecting with God and others. In addition we encourage our groups to choose a charity of their choice to support, encourage and pray for. These range from charities in the local community to overseas charities.
