About the Resource Church Pilot Project

As part of its ‘Strategic Framework to Enable Parish Health and Growth’, the PMC has established a Resource Churches Pilot Project within the Diocese. The

A Resource Church is a particular category of parish who, in partnership with the respective Regional Bishop, seeks to resource mission within a region. These parishes have an outlook beyond themselves, seeking, where appropriate and invited, to share programs; expertise; events; and facilities. These parishes have the potential to be involved in church planting or revitalisation, along with offering placements to train mission-minded leaders for the future.

The goal of a Resource Church is to help resource mission across their region and be a catalyst for growth. Resource Churches will work closely with their Regional Bishop, along with ministry specialists, to help equip themselves with the skills and expertise they need to later support and resource other parishes; develop leaders; and potentially plant or revitalise churches.

The ACSQ has committed to initial funding for the Pilot Project over four years, which included the initial set up in 2019, followed by a three-year pilot from 2020 to 2022. The proposed funding model will be reviewed in mid-2021, when a decision will be made about continuation of funding to support the completion of the pilot to 2022.
