Playing our part in the Mission of God
We recognise that God is already at work in the world and our responsibility as a local churches is to discover together what God is doing and to join him. Mission theologian David Bosch describes mission as “the good news of God’s love, incarnated in the witness of a community, for the sake of the world.”

Fresh Expressions of Church
Thrive Mission Committee is the forum that has been established for promoting mission within the WA Presbytery. Thrive seeks to work with local congregations to assist with deliberate, wise and prayerful mission planning and community outreach and to develop Fresh Expressions of Church.
We invite congregations to reimagine how the Body of Christ can live and work in diverse and changing contexts. Fresh Expressions are new forms of church that emerge within contemporary culture and engage primarily with those who don’t “go to church”. Fresh Expressions, United Kingdom gives a few examples of fresh expressions in other parts of the world.
