What Is TIM?

Background: In the summer and autumn of 2017, the Presbytery Review Group from Gordon Presbytery conducted a survey of all of the churches in the Presbytery of Gordon in one form or another. Whether it was information gained from the Minister, Kirk Session, or a small group of Elders, there was a consensus that everyone wanted to be better resourced, equipped, and connected to others in Presbytery.

The Mission and Discipleship Committee from Gordon Presbytery took this feedback seriously and for the year of 2018-2019 we are trying new ways of coming alongside churches.

This gave rise to the creation of the TIM Talk (T for theology, I for imagination, and M for ministry and mission). Our aim is to to promote discussions on topics that Churches are facing and in so doing, better equip each other for ministry.


Come Along and Join In on 21 March 2019

Have you wondered how to define discipleship? Is your church wrestling with how to cultivate maturity in believers? If so, come and join the Presbytery of Gordon's second TIM Talk.

We will hear from Rev. Neil Meyer as he shares the importance of discipleship.

Rev. Will Stalder will share the vital role that small groups can play in discipleship. After each talk, there will be a time for questions.

Teas and coffees will be offered, and resources on discipleship will be available to peruse during the evening.

Do you have questions or have a resource you want to bring along for the resource table? Be in contact with Rev. Paul McKeown or Heather Mikelson
