    The big question...Mission Is...

    The UK's first ever mission themed card game, designed to provide a fun way for people to examine their personal view of what mission is, has been launched by the Church Mission Society.

    Julie from CMS visited the Diocesan office this week to introduce diocesan staff to the game and to pose the question - 'what is mission?'.

     'Mission Is... On the cards', forms part of CMS's major new campaign designed to stimulate people's thinking about mission and broaden their perspective of the reality of mission in the 21st century.

    The game has been designed for small groups of all ages with players challenged to construct statements about what they believe Mission Is. It's fun, creative, thought provoking and a great mission conversation starter.

    Chris Priddy, Head of Parish and External Relations, said: "We had great fun getting hands on with the Mission Is game. Within churches we've really begun to develop an understand of and language for mission, but this game could really help groups to have that important conversation about what mission really is and how we engage with it."

    Mission Is campaign manager, Thomas Fowler said: "Views of mission can range from a universal 'renewal of all things' to a colloquial or as simple as baking a cake for my neighbour. There's no definitive answer, but by listening to what people have to say we hope people will be inspired to see God's mission as their mission, and get involved."
