Fr Mallon, Sherry Weddell (author of Forming Intentional Disciples) and Hannah Vaughan-Spruce from the UK Divine Renovation team will be among those presenting the webinars, which begin this Thursday, May 14.
In his book Divine Renovation: from a maintenance to a missional parish, Fr Mallon charted a journey towards what he describes as “vibrant and dynamic faith communities centred on missionary discipleship”. It was followed in 2019 by Unlocking your parish, which explores the Alpha Course as a tool for evangelisation and discipleship.
This month the following Divine Renovation webinars are available:
