workspace web banner 2Poole Missional Communities has been exploring the establishment of missional community in the workplace for some time now. Having worked with a number of employers in Poole we have now developed our work most fully at the Civic Centre offices of the Borough of Poole. Working alongside Poole Borough Chaplaincy and Christians there, we facilitate a number of activities in the building.

We run work:space Christian meditation sessions; faith@work, a lunchtime Bible reflection session, and the Happiness Course, a course exploring what enables people to be happy! We also offer a retreat twice a year for those attending any of our activities. We are open to offering other resources too in consultation with the Christian community in the Civic Centre. All of these activities take place during term-time only.

This ministry was until recently overseen by a paid member of staff. We are not currently in a position to recruit to a paid position. Instead we are looking for people who might feel excited and called by the challenge of ministry and mission in the workplace to work with us on a voluntary basis. If you have a heart for the workplace, a passion for mission and church where life happens perhaps this is something for you. You would need to be available during the day.

For an informal conversation to explore options, please contact Paul Bradbury on 07531 255194 or email paul@poolemc.org.uk.
