Missionary Discipleship

This term we are focusing on how we can be Missionary Disciples, especially in a time when we are not seeing each other as often as we would like.

Please get involved by doing the action each week yourself and sending a photo or a video (which can be used on YouTube and on this website) to tshannon@aquinas-cmat.org.

Your photos and videos will feature in this gallery and wil be used as a positive message to bring some joy to the lives of people across our Diocese in the ‘Friday Night Live’ live stream on NDCYS live on YouTube.

Week 6 – Share a message of love in a different language

This weeks challenge is to follow in the footsteps of the Disciples after Pentecost, by sharing a message of love or hope with someone in a different language. Remember to send in a photo or video of you completing the challenge!

Week 5 – Learn a skill and get sponsored for charity!

Naomi, from the Briars, gives us our next Missionary Discipleship challenge

Charities are finding things hard at the moment because lots of fundraising events have had to be cancelled. This week, you are being challenged to learn a new skill, or perhaps use an existing one, to get sponsored and raise money for your chosen charity. Send in your examples to tshannon@aquinas-cmat.org by thursday to feature on the Friday Night Live show in YouTube and on here!

Week 4 – Share a story with someone

In this weeks challenge, you are being encouraged to be a Missionary Disciple by sharing a story with someone. This could be by reading a Bible story or your favourite story and recording it for a loved one. It could mean that you read a story to some younger students in school or for a younger relative. Maybe you could even come up with your own story on a storyboard? Send them in to us!
