mission shaped ministry is a one-year, part-time course which takes people on a learning journey as part of a supportive community, training them for ministry in fresh expressions of church. Run ecumenically, msm has been presented about 24 times in South Africa and Namiwith over 400 participants (over 115 times across the UK with more than 3,600 participants also in Australia and Germany and more).

A certicicate is presented after the completion of 24 modules of the MSM Course.

To see the MSM Brochure: FESA National Flyer. March

Those who come on mission shaped ministry tend to do so:

  • as individuals and as teams;
  • as leaders and members, clergy and lay people, learning side by side;
  • as they prepare to start a fresh expression of church;
  • once they have already started a fresh expression of church;
  • because they want their existing church to be more mission-shaped.


Courses are offered  in major centres across the country:
