VentureFX is the Methodist Church’s scheme to promote and encourage pioneer mission among those who are not yet disciples of Jesus. There are currently 14 VFX pioneers working in all three nations of the UK. We recognise that there are many other people doing similar things in circuits and districts around the Methodist Church and would love to act as a resource to support all those who are on this pioneering journey in whatever context. Gathering occasionally to share learning, conversation, prayer, experience and vision seems to be an important activity for us to engage in. It can often be a fairly lonely path we tread and even the best supported of us may value the opportunity to journey with others who face similar challenges and opportunities.
Our hope for VFXtra is to gather in regional clusters three times a year, hosted by the VFX pioneers, and to take the opportunity to learn together, pray together and encourage one another. There’ll be some structured input, but plenty of time for conversation and sharing. We don’t want it to be a burden, so the invitation is to those for whom it would be helpful rather than yet another meeting to go to! The first VFXtra day will be held simultaneously in Manchester, Birmingham and Exeter on Thursday 13 December 2012. Details are on the attached flyer with someone to contact to book in. For general enquiries about VFXtra people should get in touch with the VentureFX coordinator, Ian Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
