God is transforming Melbourne!
Through Transforming Melbourne a foundation was built on authentic, transparent, trustworthy relationships between pastors and leaders and across churches and denominations. Together we raised kingdom vision, evangelism and mission, and faith that life will become more abundant for all citizens of Melbourne as they choose Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
Toward the end of 2010 the team led by Sue Tinworth discerned that the season of Melbourne Pastor’s Network and Transforming Melbourne was coming to an end. We chose to make space for the new way God would move in the next season. We understood that rather than using a centralised task force, God would raise up a diversity of connected networks with multiple ‘faceless’ servant leaders and diverse, fresh strategies. By faith, we entered a time of resting for recovery from the hard years of the Research project, All Melbourne Matters; waiting and watching for what our Father was doing so we could join Him in it.
John 12:24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-2,11 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
Momentum is now building! These are the days we waited for!
Across multiple emergent networks across the city and nation - we see our Father is:
Are you looking for opportunities to be involved?
If you are longing for this and not yet seeing it, join with us in ongoing relationship to co-discern and respond to what is on our Father’s heart for Melbourne – His strategy and timing.
If we each simply fulfil our assigned part in His plan – Jesus’ rule will flow life to our city and beyond.
Our Lord wants this because He loves the people of Melbourne so much!
